Seed Grant Information Session

Each academic year, the Global Sport Institute opens grant funding opportunities for ASU researchers through our Seed Grant Program. We invite all faculty, especially junior faculty, to attend and learn more about the program and how to apply. *(RFP now available to view: Click here)

As an interdisciplinary research-focused center, we examine critical issues of the world through the lens of sport. The academic themes we continually explore include but are not limited to race and sport, sport and the body, policy in sport, sustainability, and this year’s theme will focus on Sex, Gender & Sexuality in Sport.

To us, sport is universal and often at the cutting edge of research. So, how can your work create a positive impact?

The Global Sport Institute is where diverse disciplines converge to thoughtfully examine critical issues impacting sport. As a cross-disciplinary enterprise, the institute’s efforts are integrated throughout the entire university — from engineering to sociology, to the athletic department and beyond — rather than within a single concentration.

With an emphasis on expanding research, sharing knowledge, supporting innovation and advancing education, the institute’s mission is to use sport to create positive change throughout the world.
