Research Fellow Award

The North American Society for Sport Management Research Fellow designation recognizes NASSM's scholars by honoring their achievement in sport-related scholarship disseminated through NASSM. 

The NASSM Research Fellow designation is intended to: (a) be one of distinction within NASSM and Fellows' own academic communities, and (b) encourage high standards of research and other forms of scholarship among NASSM's members.
