Applying for a Research Grant

2015 Social Science Research Grant Program

WADA invites applications for its 2015 Social Science Research Grant Program. This Program encourages research in social science in order to obtain information that will enable more efficient doping prevention strategies.

WADA awards research grants to organizations of all types (e.g. universities, colleges, small businesses, for-profit and not-for-profit organizations).

The deadline for submissions for the 2015 program is July 10, 2014.

Three topics have been identified:

  1. Developing intervention models based on up-to-date research findings

  3. Understanding deterrence measures for entourage

Applications shall be submitted through the online application system WADAGrants.
