PAC-12 Student-Athlete Health and Well-Being Initiative – LSO Information

The PAC-12 Student-Athlete Health and Well-Being Initiative (SAHWBI) Board has released a request for pre-proposals for the 2023 cycle of its grant program (full details found HERE.) The pre-proposal will help streamline the proposal process and provide greater focus on the priority funding areas of this program. In addition to the standard grant proposal, this request includes a call for exploratory & bridge grant applications. These grants will fund preliminary studies, exploratory or development-based projects with large growth potential and high likelihood of National Institutes of Health (NIH) or similar support. 

Pre-proposals are due to the PAC-12 by 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET on August 15, 2022.  Those interested in submitting the pre-proposal to the PAC 12 should first apply to the University of Utah Athletics’ Department Research Group to determine the feasibility of doing research with Student-Athletes. Applications must be submitted to UofU Athletics (click HERE to submit) by 5:00pm MT by August 1st, 2022. Those invited by the PAC-12 to submit a full proposal will be notified by September 15, 2022.

The PAC-12 Grants are a limited submission opportunity–only three applications are allowed from each PAC-12 institution.  If invited to submit by the PAC-12, and once you have obtained a collaborative agreement with the University of Utah Athletics’ Department Research Group, you must submit your application to the Vice President for Research Office using this internal competition. Internal applications are due by 5:00pm MST on September 19th, 2022. Decisions on the final 3 selections from the University of Utah will be communicated no later than October 3rd, 2022. Full proposals are due October 14, 2022

 It is highly suggested to submit early so that there is plenty of time for all parties to review your applications. Questions about program specifics should be directed to the SAHWBI. Questions about the limited submission process can be directed to the VPR Office.
