Sports and Society Micro-Grant Program


The Sports and Society Micro-Grant Program provides a framework to further campus engagement in investigating how sports impact our society and vice versa, in areas such as race, law, gender, education, medicine, the media and more. This program is designed to support smaller scale projects that are not conducive to existing internal funding programs.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to make significant changes to the university’s budget, we are pausing this program for the remainder of the fiscal year. We will announce via myVU when the program is relaunched. If you have any questions, please reach out to Schyler Turrin (
