Athletes now have until Friday, October 15, to submit their application for The Foundation for Global Sports Development’s BOOST athlete grant program, which supports high-performance athletes in the United States who are training for the Winter Games. 

For many of these athletes, COVID-19 has resulted in reduced access to training facilities, income loss, and disruptions in coaching. The BOOST grant was created to support athletes and empower them to continue training, despite COVID-related obstacles.

Athletes over the age of 18 are eligible to apply. In total, 10 athletes will receive one-time grants of $10,000.

Final selections will be guided by an Advisory Board, which includes the following members:
Reynaldo Brown (Olympian – High Jump)
Karin Korb (Paralympian – Wheelchair Tennis)
Gabrielle Sabharwal (Publicist and PR Director)
Tracy Evans (Olympian — Freestyle Skier)
Darrell Ell (Former Competitions and Development Officer for World Curling Federation)

To learn more about the grant and complete an application, visit The Foundation for Global Sports Development. Applications must be submitted by midnight PDT on Friday, Oct 15, 2021.
