Carl V. Gisolfi, Ph.D., FACSM, was one of the most influential leaders of ACSM in its 50+ year history. With Gatorade, ACSM created the Gisolfi Memorial Fund to honor his many contributions to ACSM and the exercise science field. This grant is designated to encourage research in thermoregulation, exercise, and hydration. In support of the mission to increase diversity at ACSM, special consideration is given to minority applicants and proposals addressing minority health issues. One award will be dispersed to ACSM doctoral students in the amount of $5,000 each for a one-year period.
There are two parts to the application. Both Part A and Part B must be submitted as one complete PDF application. Applicants for student research grants must have graduate student status during the term of the grant to be considered for funding. Applicants must be current members of ACSM at the time of submitting an application to be funded. Grants are open to all ACSM members, including international members.
