US Orienteering Team Competition Grant Program

Started in Spring 2002

Purpose

The US Orienteering Team has always focused it’s efforts and funding toward promoting top US elite orienteering results internationally. A large part of this funding has been paying for many costs incurred by US orienteers attending the World Championships, trying to ensure that the best can more easily attend the World Champs without paying for all of the trip themselves.

The Competition Grant program is a new way of encouraging US orienteers to attend international events, and encouraging competition within the US team to improve the competitive results of the team as a whole.

Winners (and perhaps top placers) in major US competitions (see below) will earn competition grant money. This money can be used to reimburse their costs incurred when traveling to and attending major international competitions.
