Applications for this year’s round of the Change Our Game 2020-21 Research Grants Program are now open.
Research grants of up to $25,000 per project are available to Victorian-based universities – and universities may submit multiple applications for different projects. The program supports Victorian researchers to investigate, identify solutions, and play a leading role shaping and supporting inclusive sporting communities.
In 2020, Victoria University received a Change Our Game Research Grant to support a projectwhich highlighted the importance of uniforms in making girls feel comfortable and more likely to participate in sport.
The findings of this research have provided the sport and recreation sector with valuable insights into adolescent girls’ views on current sport uniform offerings and what types of uniform options they would prefer.
The program is part of the Victorian Government’s work to the playing field for women and girls in sport and recreation by driving leadership opportunities for women across all levels, as well as boosting research in Victoria.
The research grants are part of the Government’s $7.2 million investment in the Change Our Game initiative. To find out more about the Change Our Game Research Grant Program
