Funding opportunity: NCAA-U.S. Department of Defense Mind Matters Challenge

NCAA-DOD

Click the image to view a larger version.

The NCAA and the U.S. Department of Defense have joined forces to carry out a research and awareness program aimed at enhancing the safety of student-athletes and service members.  The partnership is intended to improve scientific understanding of concussions and other head injuries, and to promote changes in the culture surrounding reporting and management of concussions.

As part of the program, the NCAA has committed $4 million for the Mind Matters Challenge — a grant program to support research on improving the effectiveness of concussion education programs delivered to student-athletes, coaches, soldiers and other at-risk populations.

“Culturally, self-reporting head injuries or reporting others who display head injury symptoms is seen by some as a sign of weakness,” said NCAA Chief Medical Officer Brian Hainline.  “We hope to change that by arming physicians and scientists with better clinical data, and by creating educational programs to increase understanding of the importance of diagnostics for immediate action and tracking for follow-up treatment.”

The NCAA has asked for Baylor’s help in identifying members of our faculty with an interest in topics related to student-athlete, college student, or military service member safety or well-being to apply for this funding opportunity.  Specifically, the program targets individuals in the following disciplines:

  • Marketing
  • Communications
  • Education
  • Film/Theater
  • Neurology
  • Mental Health
  • Public Health
  • Psychology/Behavioral Studies
  • Sports Medicine/Sport and Exercise Science
  • Other relevant researchers/clinicians

Faculty members in these disciplines who may be interested in this program are asked to contact Baylor’s faculty athletic representative, Jeremy Counseller, prior to Sept. 15.

Limited submission funding opportunity: NEH Summer Stipends

Through its Summer Stipends program, the National Endowment for the Humanities supports individuals pursuing advanced research of value to humanities scholars, general audiences or both. Recipients usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions or other scholarly materials. Summer Stipends are awarded to individual scholars and support continuous, full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two months during summer 2015.

Organizations are limited in the number of proposals they may submit to the NEH, so the OVPR holds an internal competition to determine which Baylor applications will go forward. Internal letters of intent are due to the OVPR by Aug. 19. Full proposals for the selected projects are due to the NEH by Sept. 30, 2014.

Click here for more information and application instructions for the internal competition. You may also click here to view information about the program from the NEH.
