The 2012 William E. Simon Olympic Endowment for the Support of Athletes grant application process is currently underway. Note that this grant is targeted for athletes who are NOT receiving direct athlete support funds from the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) and therefore could be of great benefit to emerging elite athletes. Last year the application process was extremely competitive so the USOC urges you to be thorough, professional and thoughtful when completing your application and essay.
The deadline to request a password to the online system is 5 p.m. MT Oct. 3, 2012, and the deadline to complete the application process is 5 p.m. MT Oct. 8, 2012. Download the informational fact sheet here.
