The call for applications for the Young Investigators Award of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is currently open. This prize aims to encourage masters level students to focus their area of research on anti-doping issues. It rewards outstanding work completed in the area of anti-doping from a social science perspective (e.g. sociology, psychology, education, etc.). Four prizes of US$2,000 each will be allocated. Applications can be submitted until 6 June 2012.

Within the framework of WADA’s Social Science Research Program, the ultimate objective of this Award is to foster the production of knowledge in order to collect data that will enable more efficient doping prevention strategies.

Who can apply?

Students who have completed a masters level research project (thesis, thesis equivalent or internship report) in the year of application (e.g. in 2012 for the 2012 call for proposals) or who will complete a masters level research project by January 10 of the following year (e.g. January 10, 2013 for the 2012 call) in order to cater for both South and North hemisphere academic years.

Student projects must explore an aspect of anti-doping from a social science perspective (e.g. sociology, psychology, education, etc.).
