Prince Faisal Bin Fahad Award for Sports Research
About the Award
The AISTS has been mandated by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Sport and Leaders Development Institute to establish an independent scientific committee to determine the recipients of the inaugural Faisal Bin Fahad Global Award for Sport Research.
The Prince Faisal Bin Fahad Global Award for Sport Research supports rigorous, intellectually ambitious and technically sound research that is relevant to the most pressing questions and compelling opportunities in sports. The Award seeks to financially support scholarly work by PhD qualified researchers to develop new foundational knowledge, or build upon existing knowledge, that may have a lasting impact on the sports discourse in the context of Saudi Arabia.
The Award allows PhD qualified researchers to apply for funding of $80’000 USD to $120’000 USD to support their research project. A total of $2 million USD will be awarded.
The 2020 Submission is closed. The winners of the award will be announced in a few weeks. The submission deadline of the next edition will be announced as well in a few weeks.
