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 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 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.
- Regional 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 September 1. Notification will be sent approximately by November 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 1. (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 1. (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 and the total funds available in one year are $5,000. Deadline for submission of grant applications is April 1. (More Info)
- Seed Grants
The AASP Foundation offers smaller "seed grants" (up to $500) for community outreach/research projects. The primary function of these grants is to provide limited support to AASP members (especially early career professionals/pre-tenured faculty or students) for their community outreach/research endeavors. Applications will be reviewed four times a year with deadlines of January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1. The exception will be the first grant cycle in 2015 where applications will be reviewed beginning February 1, 2015.
