World Olympians Association
World Olympians Association invites National Olympians Associations around the world to apply for funding for projects, initiatives and activities that enhance the role of Olympians in society and support them in their life transition.
The three separate funding streams now open to applications for the 2018 / 2019 funding cycle are:
APPLY FOR FUNDING
Service to Society
The Service to Society Grant offers NOAs the opportunity to apply for one of five U.S. five thousand-dollar (US$5,000) grants to help drive sustainable, Olympian-led community projects and initiatives. The aim of the scheme, which was first launched in November 2016, is to empower Olympians to deliver projects that help their communities and are aligned with the promotion of the Olympic values.
Service to Olympians
The Service to Olympians Grant has been established to support Olympians off the field of play. Revealed by WOA during the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games, the scheme offers five U.S. five thousand-dollar (US$5,000) grants to fund programmes that support the ongoing development of Olympians. This could include education, skill building initiatives, reunion activities or any other programmes that directly benefit Olympians.
The NOA Administration Grant is available to all National Olympians Associations to fund regular programmes, activities and administration costs associated with the operations of their organisation.
The deadline for 2018 Service to Society and Service to Olympians applications is 31 August 2018.
