This national sport studies scholarship is intended to stimulate thoughtful examination of values-based and ethical sport.
It was established in 2014 by Lyle Makosky to help support the work of the True Sport Foundation (TSF) and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport. The fund’s capital is held and invested by the Community Foundation of Ottawa and annual earnings are used by the TSF to support financial awards in the area of values and ethics in sport with the intent to support:
- The critical examination of and an open dialogue on the compelling values-based and ethical challenges in today’s sport;
- Protecting and enhancing the quality and value of the sport experience from ethical threats;
- Ensuring the integrity of the conduct of sport; and
- Watching over the values, ethical codes, and principles on which sport is founded.
