Grants to USA post-collegiate professional track and field athletes for financial assistance to support their careers. Please note that a majority of grants will be awarded to athletes who rank "Top 10 in the USA" in their event in either of the past two years, and/or athletes who are recent graduates who ranked "Top 5 in the NCAA" standings.
A majority of the grants will be awarded to athletes who have achieved the IAAF world standard.
Preference will be given to athletes making less than $50,000 a year; however, all athletes are encouraged to apply regardless of their income level.
