The Athletic Excellence Fund, which provides financial support for provincial athletes, coaches and officials, is now accepting applications for 2016.
“The Athletic Excellence Fund is designed to encourage and advance sport excellence in Newfoundland and Labrador by helping to offset the cost of training and competition for athletes competing at Atlantic, national and international competition. As a government, we support the pursuit of sporting excellence and I encourage interested parties to make application through their governing Provincial Sport Organization.”
– The Honourable Sherry Gambin-Walsh, Minister of Seniors, Wellness and Social Development
The Athletic Excellence Fund is composed of four individual programs – the Premier’s Athletic Awards, Team Gushue Awards, Elite Athlete Assistance Program, and Sport NL Scholarships. Applicants must be a current member in good standing with their Provincial Sport Organization.
Completed applications are to be submitted to the Provincial Sport Organization on or before January 29, 2016.
