Women’s Sports Foundation Offers Support for Aspiring Female Athletes Through Travel & Training Fund
Deadline: September 23, 2011

The Women’s Sports Foundation’s Travel & Training Fund provides direct financial assistance to aspiring female athletes — in individual and team sports – with successful competitive records who have the potential to achieve even higher performance and rankings.

Travel & Training grants are intended to allow serious female athletes a chance to fulfill their potential on the regional, national, or international level through assistance for coaching, specialized training, equipment, athletic attire, and/or travel.

Applications may be submitted by an individual athlete or a team (two or more females). Individual applicants and all members of a team must be female U.S. citizens or legal residents and be eligible to compete for a U.S. national team; must have amateur status; and must demonstrate the ability, based on competitive record and years in training, to reach and compete at an elite level.

High school, college, university, or community recreation sports teams are not eligible.

An individual or team may be awarded only one grant per calendar year and a maximum of three grants to an individual or team in a lifetime.

Grant amounts vary. A minimum of $100,000 in total grants will be awarded each calendar year through two funding rounds.

The second round of funding for 2011 opens July 25, 2011, and closes September 23, 2011.
