The Virginia Division of USA Fencing, LLC., has implemented a program to offer its fencers financial assistance when they compete internationally.
Starting on August 1 of each fencing calendar year (Current being 8/1/2018-7/31/2019), grants of $400.00 are available to individual fencers who are members of the Virginia Division to reimburse expenses related to competing in international Veteran, Senior, Junior and Cadet level USA Fencing designated competitions.
Eligibility is limited to one grant per season and is available for expenses not fully reimbursed from other sources.
To receive these grants, fencers should complete and submit the VA Division Grant Application with copies of all the relevant receipts for evaluation, approval and reimbursement to firstname.lastname@example.org
It would be appreciated if all grant reimbursement requests are submitted before the beginning of Summer Nationals (approximately June 30th) of each calendar year, to support the July 31stfinancial close required by USA Fencing. For this season (2018-2019), this deadline will be pushed back until after the completion of Summer Nationals.
Any questions regarding this policy can be sent to email@example.com.
