Applications for the 2010 Team Investors Group Amateur Athletes Fund are now available!
In keeping with their commitment to amateur sport in Canada, Investors Group is once again offering $5,000 each to 20 of our country’s high performance athletes to assist with costs of training and competition. Since the program’s inception in 2000, the Team Investors Group Amateur Athletes Fund has provided Canadian athletes with $1,000,000.
“The Investors Group Bursary kept me out of the line at the soup kitchen and in line for medals on the world stage!” says Jon Montgomery, Skeleton athlete and 2010 Olympic hopeful. “The additional funding has enabled me to focus on training and competition as I work towards representing Canada at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics and I am thankful for their generosity”.
The bursary selection committee is made up of active and retired national team athletes and officials from AthletesCAN. The bursary fund is open to any active senior national team athlete who meets the eligibility criteria.
Deadline for applications is February 1, 2010. Click here for more details and to download the application: http://www.athletescan.com/Content/Programs%20and%20Services/00%20Investors%20Group.asp?langid=1
