ACSM invests in the future of sports medicine and exercise science by giving to our student members. Student members are eligible for grants and awards to offset the rising costs of tuition and travel. Upcoming student award opportunities are listed below. 

Carl V. Gisolfi Memorial Fund

Deadline:
Jan 20, 2017, 11:59 PM
Amount:
$5,000.00 USD

 

Carl V. Gisolfi, Ph.D., FACSM, was one of the most influential leaders of ACSM in its 50+ year history. With Gatorade, ACSM created the Gisolfi Memorial Fund to honor his many contributions to ACSM and the exercise science field. This grant is designated to encourage research in thermoregulation, exercise, and hydration.  In support of the mission to increase diversity at ACSM, special consideration is given to minority applicants and proposals addressing minority health issues. One award will be dispersed to ACSM doctoral students in the amount of $5,000 each for a one-year period.

Applicants for student research grants must have graduate student status during the term of the grant to be considered for funding. Applicants must be current members of ACSM at the time of submitting an application to be funded. Grants are open to all ACSM members, including international members. However, the NASA initiative is open to U.S. residents only. 

The deadline for applications has passed.  Information for 2018-2019 funding will be available in the fall.

You may contact the Research Administration and Programs Department regarding this grant at foundation@acsm.org.
