Supporting Canadian Athletes

Athlete Funding

Click here to view Athlete Funding as a pdf.

There are a number of funding opportunities for high performance athletes. A few of the opportunities are listed below. In addition to these, athletes should contact their post-secondary institution (if applicable) to find out about scholarships for athletes competing for a university or college, as well as academic scholarship options. Many Provincial Sport Organizations and National Sport Organizations also have internal scholarships established as “memorial” tributes to past members or Directors, or scholarships supported by corporate sponsors. Athletes should contact the appropriate sport organization to investigate this possibility. Various Service Clubs such as Rotary International, Kin Canada, the Lions Clubs or the Royal Canadian Legion offer scholarships and bursaries. The clubs in the athlete’s town or city should be contacted for information and deadlines.
