Wishing to advance research into the health benefits - physical, mental and emotional - of physical activity and sports, the Dr. Raymond A. Weiss Research Endowment has been established for ACSM students studying in this field. One project will be funded for applied rather than for basic research, with the intent of applying the results to programs involving physical activity and sports. The psychological and emotional benefits of physical activity are of particular importance to the benefactors of this endowment, the late Drs. Raymond and Rosalee Weiss, and proposals addressing those issues will be given priority. One award of $1,500 is available. 

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. However, the NASA initiative is open to U.S. residents working in U.S. universities only.
