Abuse-Free Sport Research Grant Program 

Bloc main.blocs.text

The overall objective of the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada’s (“SDRCC”) Abuse-Free Sport Research Grant Program (“Program”) is to invest in safe sport research to maintain and increase the understanding of the behaviours that need to be reinforced or prevented, and to evaluate the impact of the Abuse-Free Sport program and initiatives. This will improve the development of effective policies, processes and practices, enhancing the sport experience for all. 

Application Process

The Program follows a two-stage process:

1) Following a call for proposals, interested applicants must complete the Expression of Interest form, to determine whether the SDRCC’s present interests and available funds permit consideration of a full proposal;

2) Only invited proposals will be considered and reviewed. Applicants must submit a full proposal of maximum 15 pages that details their project following item 3.b) of the Abuse-Free Sport Research Grant Program Guidelines.

Next Call for Proposals

The next call for proposals will be launched in the Fall of 2023.
