The ITU Sport Development team has just released the revised criteria and application forms for both its athlete and coaching scholarship programs as well as Team ITU.
Athletes and coaches selected for the scholarship programme will be carefully ‘placed’ in a programme commensurate with their specific needs in the interest of their progressive development to an elite level.
The primary objective of Team ITU is to provide support, resources and expertise to Elite athletes from emerging/developing National Federations to compete at a World Cup level and at the same time increase the number of coaches from emerging/developing National Federations gaining experience in the preparation and support of athletes competing at a World Cup level.
Full details are available under the ‘Development’ section of ITU’s website, triathlon.org.
Details may be directly accessed at:
Athlete Scholarship: http://www.triathlon.org/development/athlete/athlete_scholarship/
Coaches scholarship: http://www.triathlon.org/development/coach/coaching_scholarship/.
Please note that applications must be submitted by your National Federation.
