Assessment criteria


The following criteria are used by the Grants Panel when considering applications:

The priority of Future Sport is to offer financial support for UP AND COMING, YOUNG, TALENTED SPORTSPEOPLE supported by their governing body, and who are NOT in receipt of National Lottery Funding. A well established senior international performer is not likely to be supported from Future Sport funds. Rather support will be forthcoming to individuals starting out on their sporting paths.


FINANCIAL NEEDS. As the grant is to assist with financial hardship, applicants must indicate the nature of their need.


AGE. Applicants should normally be between 10 and 20 years of age at the end of the period for which the grant is requested.
