American College of Sports Medicine Foundation Raymond and Rosalee Weiss Research Endowment
Amount: $1,500.00 USD
Number Given: 1
Wishing to advance research into the health benefits - physical, mental and emotional - of physical activity and sports, the Weiss Research Endowment has been established for ACSM students studying in this field. One project will be funded for applied rather than for basic research, with the intent of applying the results to programs involving physical activity and sports. The psychological and emotional benefits of physical activity are of particular importance to the benefactors of this endowment, Drs. Raymond and Rosalee Weiss, and proposals addressing those issues will be given priority. One reward of $1,500 is available.
American College of Sports Medicine Paffenbarger-Blair Fund for Epidemiological Research on Physical Activity
Amount: $10,000.00 USD
Dr. Ralph S. Paffenbarger, Jr., a co-recipient of the first Olympic Prize in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine, made an extraordinarily generous gift to the American College of Sports Medicine by donating his share of the award to the College's capital campaign with the monies added to the College's epidemiology endowment. The interest on this contribution makes this grant possible. The intent of this award is to encourage researchers early in their career to become involved with physical activity epidemiology. The applications may focus on observational studies of physical activity and health outcomes, or on randomized controlled trials that are clearly focused on physical activity and important public health issues. Applicants are expected to apply within two (2) years of receiving a postgraduate degree or completion of clinical training. The award will be in the amount of $10,000 for a one year period.
