Updated: Jan 22, 2019
The NCAA awarded Elodie Wendling the Graduate Student Research Grant to fund her dissertation. Elodie's project is titled, "Career Identity Reformation in the Transition to Life after Sport: An Assessment of Identity Statuses, Psychosocial Functioning, and Transition Experiences of Former College Athletes". This study aims to assess the career identity structures of former college athletes and their psychosocial functioning post-sport life, and to examine relationships between identity and transition through written narratives. A mixed-methods design will be used, in which former college athletes will be invited to participate first in a survey about their identity and well-being, and second in a written narrative to share their transition experience to life after sport. This study will provide theoretical and practical insights on the well-being and identity reformation processes of an understudied, yet a very important stakeholder group of NCAA college sport, its former student-athletes.
