Through a partnership with the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, USA Fencing is pleased to offer a $20,000 parafencing development grant to a USA Fencing club looking to grow the sport.
The parafencing development grant will allow a USA Fencing club to create a sustainable parafencing program with multiple parafencing athletes.
Applications should emphasize inclusivity and creativity with the selected applicant using a portion of the grant to attend one of the IWAS World Cups in 2020 as well as providing community partner information and potential adaptive events the club will use to demo the sport in their area.
To be eligible, clubs must be members of USA Fencing. The grant may be used to start a parafencing program or enhance a club’s current program.
The deadline to apply is May 31, 2020 with the winner being announced at the USA Fencing National Championships in Louisville.
To submit an application for the parafencing development grant, the following information is required:
Funds will be distributed monthly via a reimbursement system based off proof of purchase.
