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. Funding applications for 2018 / 2019 are now closed.
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. Funding applications for 2018 / 2019 are now closed.
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.
