GSSI's Women in Sports Science Research Award

Women Sport Science Researcher Award

This award aims to support and celebrate women scientists conducting research related to the nutrition and/or hydration needs of active women, including performance and health outcomes. At GSSI we are making a commitment to invest in female specific research by not only conducting and funding research, but also supporting the scientific community of women in sport science to build a strong foundation of researchers. The two $5,000 awards are for women graduate students, postdocs and early career faculty to encourage the development of specialized knowledge on female nutrition and exercise physiology.
