Once again, the Alberta Sport Connection is pleased to offer funding to Alberta’s High Performance Athletes to help offset costs of living, training and competing.
Podium Alberta is a retroactive funding program, and the current application intake is reviewing July 1, 2018-June 30, 2019 (Year in Review). Athletes must be carded through Sport Canada’s Athlete Assistance Program at any point during those 12 months (even if no longer carded) to be eligible to apply.
Athletes can be originally from Alberta and currently residing elsewhere for various reasons, or from out of province and currently residing in Alberta (for at least one year prior to being eligible for funding). Athletes may not receive funding from more than one provincial or territorial jurisdiction.
More information and eligibility criteria can be found at https://albertasport.ca/funding/podium-alberta/ with eligibility outlined at https://albertasport.ca/funding/podium-alberta/podium-alberta-eligibility/
The deadline for application is October 3rd, and athletes can contact Steven Patrick (Steven.Patrick@albertasport.ca or (780) 644-4897 (B)) directly to enquire about instructions for applying.
