How to get a research grant?

  • How to get a research grant?

    By submitting an application for one of the two annual research grant programmes offered by the IOC’s Olympic Studies Centre (OSC):

    PhD Students and Early Career Academics Research Grant Programme:
    The aim of this programme is to help researchers at the start of their career. It is aimed in particular at all PhD students and early career academics (university staff members and postdoctoral interns who obtained their doctorate or final equivalent degree in the past three years) who are engaged in research into any aspect of the Olympic world from a human or social sciences perspective.

    Advanced Olympic Research Grant Programme:
    This second programme is to encourage established researchers to work from a human or social sciences perspective in the priority research areas that the IOC defines each year. University teachers, lecturers and other researchers with a doctorate who hold an academic or research function, or who are attached to a university, are welcome to submit proposals.
