RESEARCH FUNDS AVAILABLE. Preliminary Grant Applications due May 7, 2004.

The National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment
(NOCSAE) is a non-profit standards setting organization and a leading
force in the effort to improve the safety of athletic equipment. In
its effort to commission research, NOCSAE solicits grant proposal
from any and all qualified investigators. The scope of the grants
considered for funding include basic and/or applied research bearing
a relationship towards increasing our understanding of sports injury
mechanisms and injury prevention through the use of protective sports
equipment. Priority is given to proposals focusing on recurring
injury where the injury is either "catastrophic," "serious," and/or
"costly". Awards are based upon scientific merit as ranked by a
national panel of experts and upon the priorities of the NOCSAE Board
of Directors. Recent priorities have been, but are not limited to,
understanding and preventing mild traumatic brain injuries.

Applying for Funding. Due to the diversity and complexity of
potential research proposals, a two-phase application procedure is
required. Those interested in seeking funding are required to first
submit a Preliminary Grant Application. This brief, one page
proposal is reviewed by the NOCSAE Board of Directors. From these
preliminary proposals, the Board votes to invite full proposals due
in November 2004, with funding starting in February 2005.

Further details on the grant application process can be found at
