USOPC

ACE | USOPC Tuition Grants

Grants are intended to encourage athletes to further their formal education in preparation for lifelong career goals by defraying a portion of athletes' tuition costs. An athlete's performance standards, financial need and other scholarships awarded are considered when determining an award. Applications are available on the ACE platform.

In-State Tuition

Through ACE and the USOPC, eligible Team USA athletes living and training in Colorado and Utah can receive in-state tuition at select public colleges and universities regardless of an individual’s resident status.

Additional Education Programs

ACE connects with higher education institutions to provide continuing education opportunities and programs for job specific skills training. This includes tuition discounts, bootcamps, certifications and more.

Other

While the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee does provide funding to athletes, other organizations also provide grants and scholarship opportunities. Eligibility is determined by the organizations. The ACE team will share any opportunities for Team USA athletes on the platform, as well as share links to different sources for funding.
