Grants 

The NSCA Foundation provides a variety of support to help graduate students, from the Master’s level to the Doctoral level, achieve their goals of uncovering the next big cutting-edge breakthrough in exercise science or strength and conditioning research. To date, the NSCA Foundation has awarded 137 grants totaling $1,726,094 to fuel strength and conditioning research endeavors.

  • GNC® Nutrition Research Grant – Sponsored by GNC® ($2,500)
  • Graduate Research Grant – Master’s ($7,500) or Doctoral ($15,000)
  • Young Investigator Grant (up to $20,000)
  • Senior Investigator Grant (up to $30,000)
  • International Collaboration Grant (up to $50,000)
  • Eleiko Equipment Grant ($15,000)
  • Coaching Advancement Grant ($1,000)
The benefits of the Master's research grant have extended far beyond the funding. The detailed application process pushed me to commit my research goals to paper, and consider the practical application for strength and conditioning professionals. I feel more connected to research community and more excited about my thesis as a result.
