In an effort to recognize the Association members' contributions to the science and practice of applied sport psychology, AASP has established an awards and grants program.
The Grant programs serve two purposes:
- to support Student Regional Conferences where student-centered programs provide an opportunity for students to present their work in a professional meeting format and
- to provide limited support to early career professionals or students for their research endeavors, or to fund projects where no other funding may be possible.
Address questions about the Student Regional Conference grants to the President-Elect or Student Representative who review the proposals.
Address all questions about the Research Grant Program to the Science and Education Division Head who coordinates the review process.
- Student Conference Grant
The Executive Board of AASP is committed to supporting student-oriented professional meetings and may award up to eight grants for a maximum of $500 per year. The purpose for these grants is to help students defer costs associated with regional conferences (e.g., provide seed money) that promote student presentations and/or student-oriented sessions to discuss professional issues. For all conferences, please complete the application by November 1. Notification will be sent approximately by January 1. (More Info)
- Research Grants
The Association for Applied Sport Psychology offers “seed grants” for research projects. Grants range from $250 to $5000, recognizing that the total funds available in one year are $18,000. The primary function of these research awards is to provide limited support to early career professionals (pre-tenured faculty) or students for their research endeavors. Secondary consideration will be given, pending available funds, for projects from tenured faculty or practitioners for projects that clearly benefit the members of AASP. All application materials are due April 1st. (More Info)
- Community Outreach Grant
The purpose of the Community Outreach Grant is to provide funding for projects that incorporate evidence-based practice and support local community initiatives that are congruent with AASP's purpose and mission, as well as the objectives of the Community Outreach Committee. Budgets must fall between $250 and a maximum of $5,000, recognizing that the total funds available in one year are $12,000. All application materials are due April 1st. (More Info)
- Oglesby-Snyder Grant for Equity and Cultural Diversity
The Oglesby-Snyder Grant for Equity and Cultural Diversity is intended to stimulate and enhance efforts to apply sport psychology research to both advance a richer knowledge base and articulate a strong rationale for advocacy assuring that the values and benefits of sport are available to all on an equitable basis. Grants are available for up to $5,000. Deadline for submission of grant applications in 2014 is July 1, 2014 and April 1 in 2015 and beyond. (More Info)
