USCA Review Committee for ICF Scholarships

USCA ICF Junior/Senior World Marathon, Sprint and/or International Championship Funding

United States Canoe Association (USCA) has established a program to provide travel support to USCA members who qualify for the International Canoe Federation (ICF) Junior/Senior World Marathon, Sprint and/or International Championships. The goals of the program are to encourage all of our younger paddlers to strive for the excellence that international competition represents, and to assist our most promising, and accomplished, younger members to compete with the best marathon paddlers in the world, at the ultimate marathon paddling event in the world.

Specifically, USCA will provide up to $3000 annually to fund qualifying USCA member travel to the annual ICF Junior/Seniors World Marathon Championships, World Sprint Championships, and other ICF Kayak Championships for which they have qualified. A maximum of $1,000 may be awarded to any one individual attending Jr./Sr. World Marathon or Sprint Championships. No more than $500 may be awarded to any qualified individual attending another ICF International Championship event. $1,000 is the maximum total annual award to any one individual attending multiple international events.

To be considered for travel funding an applicant must:

1. Be USCA member at the time of application
2. Not have reached 35 years of age in the year of the competition for which funding is sought.
3. Have participated in 3 of the 5 USCA National Canoe & Kayak Championships immediately prior to the date of application, or have participated in 1 of the 3 USCA National Canoe & Kayak Championships immediately prior to the date of application if competing as a junior.
4. Have been selected by USA Canoe / Kayak (USACK) to the Junior/Senior, or under 23 World Marathon and/or World Sprint Championship team for which support is requested.
5. Submit a complete and satisfactory application to the USCA ICF Review Committee for ICF Scholarships prior to the date specified on the application.
6. Summarize, on your application, an initiative that you will undertake during the year to introduce and promote marathon paddling to the community.
