Graduate Student Grant Program

The Datalys Center is pleased to offer this grant program for motivated and deserving graduate students whose research interests align with those of the Datalys Center.

This program was established specifically to provide research support for two important constituencies who have been instrumental in the success of the Datalys Center. Those include former Collegiate Student-Athletes and Athletic Trainers. We specifically chose to provide research support for these two groups because through participation in the NCAA Injury Surveillance Program, the Student-Athletes and Athletic Trainers help make sports safer for athletes at all levels of play.

There is an individual grant program for both doctoral and masterís students. For fairness, doctoral student grants are evaluated separately from masterís level students. Grant proposals are reviewed by our external Scientific Advisory Committee.


Each year the single best masterís grant ($1000) and the single best doctoral grant ($1500) will be funded. The principle investigator (student) must be a graduate student in good standing at the time of submission and must complete the research prior to graduation. There is no application deadline, and successful proposals will be funded as received beginning in January each year. Please contact us via email for remaining funding availability.


Please follow this link for the full application packet which includes a full list of requirements and formatting instructions. A Grant Program Cover Page can be found here. For more information or questions, please email us or call 317-275-3664. We look forward to your participation in our grant program and wish you good luck in your efforts.
