Athletes throughout Newfoundland and Labrador can now apply for the 2022 Athletic Excellence Fund.

The Athletic Excellence Fund supports local athletes by providing financial assistance to help offset the costs associated with training and competition. Funding is provided to athletes through four different channels – the Premier’s Athletic Awards, the Team Gushue Awards, the Elite Athlete Assistance Program, and the Sport NL Scholarship Program.

In order to apply, applicants must be members in good standing of a Provincial Sport Organization. Completed applications must be submitted to an individual’s respective Provincial Sport Organization by Wednesday, January 26, 2022. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered. A copy of the application can be found online here.

“Supporting our athletes is important to the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. Aside from the physical and mental health benefits derived from sport, athletes are role models, champions, and ambassadors of active, healthy living in our communities.  I encourage interested and eligible individuals to apply for the Athletic Excellence Fund by the January 26 deadline.”
