    Classification Research Grant

    The Classification Research Grant Scheme has its origin in the Agitos Foundation Grant Support Programme, launched in 2013. This Agitos Foundation programme provided an opportunity for IFs and IOSDs to apply for financial support for ‘‘Classification research and strategies’’ initiatives.

    Following internal evaluation of the Agitos Foundation Grant Support Programme it was decided to remove classification research as a funding area for the Agitos Foundation and to develop a specific Classification Research Grant Scheme, managed by the IPC. This decision indicates the importance the IPC pays to classification research and gives International Sport Federations, International Organisations of Sports for the Disabled and Recognised International Sport Federations the opportunity to focus on other projects under the continued Agitos Foundation Grant Support Programme.

    The total budget for the 2017 Classification Research Grant Scheme is 150,000 EUR.

    The maximum grant per individual projects is 20,000 EURO with a guaranteed matched funding by the International Sport Federations, International Organisations of Sports for the Disabled or Recognised International Sport Federations and/or third parties of (at minimum) 30% of the budget requested (this is: an application of 20,000 EUR must have a guaranteed matched funding of 6,000 EUR).

    Applications will only be accepted from International Sport Federations, International Organisations of Sports for the Disabled and Recognised International Sport Federations, and are due to be submitted by 15 July 2017 using the Application Form.

    Applicants will be informed no later than 1 October 2017 of the result of their application.

    For further details, please see the enclosed 2017 Classification Research Grant Scheme – Application Guidelines and Application Form.

    Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected].

    We invite International Sport Federations, International Organisations of Sports for the Disabled and Recognised International Sport Federations to embrace this opportunity to further develop and strengthen their classification systems.

    We look forward to your application!
