We just heard that the 2012/2013 GO GOLD scheme to support talented local athletes is now open for applications. This is the info we have:
Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport, supported by Leicestershire County Council and Leicester City Council, are pleased to support talented young athletes through the GO GOLD Talented Athlete Fund.
The aim of GO GOLD is to support talented young athletes in full-time education who are currently performing at regional standard or above in their sport, including those athletes who are being recognised by their National Governing Bodies as being our future Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth athletes and potential medal winners.
Funding to support GO GOLD is given by Leicestershire County Council and Leicester City Council, and it financially support athletes who live or attend a school in Leicestershire or Leicester City. University Students must have a parental residence within our specified boundaries.
The scheme opens annually in September - October for applications. The 2012/13 Fund is open for applications from 1st September - 31st October 2012.
New for 2012/13 - Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport are also launching the GO GOLD Graduate Scheme for athletes who have graduated from their College or University, but are still performing their sport at a high level. These applicants MUST be previous recipients of the GO GOLD scheme.
