AAA applications for 2018 grants now open
The AAAs charity 'Athletics for the Young' is seeking applications from athletes under the age of 23 - who are in full time education or equivalent and not receiving other funding - to apply for assistance. Athletes should be eligible to compete for England.
Registered charity Athletics for the Young offer financial help to young athletes and aim to spread their money widely to as many as possible so athletes receiving help elsewhere will not usually be granted an award. The charity are particularly interested in helping genuine hardship cases for promising young athletes. The grant scheme supported in the past 4 members of the 2016 Olympic Team.
Over recent years, it has been the policy of the Charity to award small grants of the order of £50 to £200. This policy is not to the exclusion of the consideration of larger sums should your application or athletic project warrant.
The Grant Application form can be downloaded below and to qualify an applicant must be actively involved with athletics under age 23 and in full time education. Entries close 10th February 2018 and the AAA expect to advise awards by the end of April. Applications should be competed by applicants and handwritten. A downloadable version of the Grant Application available via www.englandathletics.org/AAA. It is possible to apply for funds for costs including equipment and travel.
