International Competitive Opportunities Grant
In 2013, USATF will continue a program launched in 2010 which provided direct financial assistance to a limited number of athletes, to assist them with the cost of travel, housing and training while competing internationally during the summer. The primary purpose of the grant is to help athletes defray travel expenses not covered by meet directors and/or to assist them with the financial burden of securing housing and/or training sites. Priority for this funding was given to those athletes who would not otherwise have the opportunity to participate or would need to devote a great deal of their earnings from the meet to pay for their travel and related expenses.
For 2013, this program is being structured to provide athletes with funds for international meets in the spring as well as for the traditional summer period. Athletes meeting the criteria outlined below will be able to submit an application for consideration for funding:
Application Deadline is April 1, 2013 (close of business 5:00 p.m. ET)
