Grants

The UKSCA Grants Panel awards grants in four areas:

Early Years Career Development Grants

The UKSCA is keen to support clubs and organisations who are developing the skills of S&C coaches in their early years. Awards of up to £1250 are available to clubs and organisations that are committed to the development of their staff but don’t necessarily have the funds to provide third party education and training. The next application deadline is 19 May 2017.

Conference Poster Grants

There will be up to six grants awarded, providing day passes to the full conference (£230), to members who are either students nearing the completion of their studies or members who have novel and exciting research findings or a case study to present and may not have access to alternate funding streams. We would like to support members who wish to present their work at the conference, but may not be able to attend for financial reasons. The next application deadline is 12 June 2017.
