The research grant is a one-time award set at a maximum of $7,500. Grant recipients will be provided with an expense paid trip to the annual NCAA Research Committee meeting (Fall 2017) to present their findings and will have the opportunity to interact with and receive feedback from the committee and NCAA staff members. The research is expected to culminate in an article suitable for publication in a scholarly journal, or in a completed master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation, which will be shared with NCAA Research upon publication or completion.
