Upcoming 2012-2013 application deadlines: May 1, 2013 - August 1, 2013 (Tuition Grant only) - December 1, 2013
The United States Olympic Committee offers tuition assistance and legacy grants to qualifying top active athletes, retired athletes, and on occasion, coaches, enrolled in an accredited degree- or certificate-granting program at an academic institution of higher learning. USOC Tuition Grants cover tuition and mandatory fees only, and do not cover books, room and board charges, or parking fees. Legacy Grants can be used for tuition, fees, books, room and board, as well as expenses associated with on-line courses. Please read the USOC "Tuition Grant Guidelines" document and the grant application form for details.
Please note that the Tuition Grant application process is much more competitive than the Legacy Grant application process simply due to the number of athletes applying for each. Tuition Grant awards are traditionally considered for those applicants who have a current top-8 Olympic Games/Paralympic Games/World Championships placement or world ranking. With this in mind, if you are an athlete who qualifies for both, we encourage you to submit an application for a Legacy Grant.
Because USA Curling must review and certify each application and then forward it to the USOC, please send your completed documents to USA Curling so that they're received in time for us to meet the USOC's deadline. Applications can be sent to USA Curling via email (
