New Research Grant from IRWG and SHARP Announced
The Joan Schafer Research Faculty Award in Sport, Fitness, and Disability, established in 2015, supports projects investigating how living with a physical challenge influences access to and participation in sport and physical activity. Projects that have real world application are a top funding priority. This grant supports both theoretical as well as intervention research, including challenges and solutions related to transitioning to civilian life from military service.
IRWG and the Sport, Health & Activity Research and Policy Center (SHARP) has issued the Call for Proposals, with a submission deadline of April 29, 2016.
Up to two awards of $5,000 each may be funded. Support may be requested for individual activities, such as research assistance, research-related travel, research materials, collaborative projects, pilot studies or initial research efforts. While providing funds for new and emerging work is a priority for this program, requests for support of ongoing programs of research are also considered. Applications from all academic disciplines will be considered.
Awards will be announced in summer 2016. Tenure-track, non-tenure track, emeritus faculty; clinical faculty; research faculty; and librarians at the University of Michigan are eligible.
