2018 ACCT Research Grant


The ACCT Research Grant was created to further research in the challenge course industry by providing financial assistance (up to $1,500) to individuals conducting challenge course research. Proposals will be accepted December 15, 2017 – January 15, 2018. 

Submissions are reviewed by the ACCT Research Advisory Group and all applicants will be notified by the end of January 2018. Grant awardees will be expected to present their research at a future ACCT conference. 

All proposals should not exceed five pages and are expected to include the following:

  •  Title of the research project.
  • Purpose of the research (including how this is related to the challenge course industry and a literature review).
  • The problem or issue of focus and the research questions being asked, and how this research will benefit the challenge course industry.
  • The research methodology being used.
  • The proposed budget for the research project (indirect costs are not permitted).
  • Project timeline and IRB approval.
  • List of relevant documented references/works cited (may include those used to justify proposal and potential references). These are not personal references.

Specific questions about the research grant can be sent directly to Lizzie Lange (, Chair of the ACCT Research Advisory Group.
