Youth Competition Grant

The Youth Competition Grant is meant specifically to help youth athletes with the costs of traveling to large competitions in the US and abroad.  Examples of large competitions are the Ouray competitions, the World Championships and the North American Youth Championships as well as UIAA World Cup competitions.

We are currently working on developing the Youth Competition Grant. If you or your organization is interested in supporting this youth grant, please use the Contact page.

Foreign World Cup Grant

International travel for UIAA Ice Climbing World Cup competitions can be costly even for the most frugal of climbers.  That's why we have the Foreign World Cup Grant.  The purpose of the grant is to increase US athlete attendance at Foreign World Cups.  If you or your organization is interested in supporting this Foreign World Cup Grant, please use the Contact page.
