OSC Research Grant Programme 2014

The IOC Olympic Studies Centre (OSC) has launched the 2014 PhD Students Research Grant Programme intended for doctoral students engaged in scholarly research on the Olympic Movement, its history and ideals, and the impact of the Olympic Games on the various aspects of contemporary society and culture. This programme is part of the new IOC OSC research plan, and will be followed by other activities aimed at the academic community.

The objectives of this programme are to:

  • encourage PhD students to undertake research with a humanities or social sciences perspective on the Olympic phenomena. All projects dealing with the Olympic Movement and/or the Olympic Games will be considered;
  • promote consultation of and access to written and audiovisual IOC patrimony.

All current postgraduate students enrolled in a PhD programme are eligible to apply. Application files, and any related correspondence, should be sent to the OSC at research_grants@olympic.org before 27 September 2013. An explanatory document and application form are available at www.olympic.org/news/phd-students-research-grant-programme-2014/195907
