May 30, 2024

The National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) funding program is now open for applications.

The mission of the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) is to commission research in sports medicine and science and, where feasible, establish standards for athletic equipment. Accordingly, the intent of the NOCSAE grant program is to commission investigator-initiated research and to provide support for education, health, and safety research and development. The NOCSAE research plan proposed by the applicant must be related to NOCSAE’s stated program interests. NOCSAE will fund awards under two separate mechanisms:
• Large-Grant Program: Traditional research projects that do not exceed $250,000 in direct costs over two years.
• Small-Grant Program: Small pilot developmental studies that do not exceed $50,000 in direct costs for one year.

Specific Areas of Research Interest
NOCSAE invites all investigator-initiated proposals that address NOCSAE’S core mission. Specific research topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Studies that inform existing helmet safety standards.
• The mechanical and biological mechanisms of injury and recovery.
• The application of developed tools and equipment for injury prevention.
• Studies related to the development of new equipment safety standards.
• Studies related to sport safety.

Eligible Applicants
NOCSAE awards grants to organizations of all types (universities, colleges, small businesses, for profit, etc.) within North America.

The grant mechanisms allow an investigator to define the scientific focus or objective of the research based on a particular area of interest and competence.
