Athletes submit their applications in April/May to be considered for grant awards for that same year.
Our Elite Grant Committee evaluates the athletes on a mixture of performance, income, need, and character.
Award winners are notified directly of their grant award. Athletes correspond with USATF Foundation and receive their grant check in the mail.
Thank you for supporting my career and journey as a professional Track & Field athlete, as I represent our country. The grant I received will definitely help me get the necessary treatment my body needs to continue to perform at a high level. It is an honor and I will make sure to make you guys proud.
To everyone that is involved with the USATF Foundation I just want to say thank you. I thank you for taking the time to process and go through the many different stories of all the athlete submissions. Thank you for choosing me, I’m greatly appreciative. Being an unsponsored athlete in this sport has to be the greatest struggle - being that we’re supposed to be in this professional realm; which doesn’t feel too professional at times for the majority of us. This is going to elevate my training, career and create an impact on another level. Again, thank you for choosing me, and being a part of my journey!
I fully support the USATF Foundation. The additional revenue generated by the Foundation will help expand existing programs and create innovative new ones. Additionally, the Foundation will assist athletes as they pursue their Olympic dreams. Please join me in growing the sport of track & field by making your gift today.
I wanted to let you know how grateful I am to be a recipient of this year’s grant awards, it will definitely go a long way to help me get healthy and stay healthy while pursuing my Olympic dreams. You all are doing wonderful things in supporting athlete’s and making our lives easier. Thank you very much for this wonderful opportunity and some financial freedom.
Thank you so much! I feel very grateful to have everyone at the Foundation as part of my support team. The Foundation has been so generous to the developing athletes in this sport! It has made a great difference in the way I am able to train, and I hope to be exactly where I need to be come next year!
WOW! Thank you for the recognition, I’m truly grateful and honored. Thanks for always supporting me and making sure I never lack in my training. This is an extra motivation for me to work hard and bring home a Gold medal at the next Olympics. Again I’m very very grateful.
