US Collegiate Archery Event Travel Funding Request
Sponsored by Easton Foundations
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION is 21 March 2012
Clubs will be notified of their status by 5 April 2010
The purposes of this program are: 1) to promote growth and retention of college archery athletes; 2) to provide support for collegiate competition archers; and 3) to support growth in archery competitive events. Since the funds are being provided by a Foundation, only clubs that are affiliated with an institution of higher learning or have non-profit status are eligible.
The following criteria will be used to help determine if a request is granted and the award amount:
These criteria apply for clubs of all sizes. It’s significant if last year’s one-person club is able to bring additional archers to this year’s events. It’s also significant if a smaller club begins to compete in the team events.
Qualifying Scores must be submitted along with your application. Qualifying scores must be shot within 12 months of the request for funding and meet the requirements of at least three archers shooting in a sanctioned tournament. Proof consists of a signed scorecard or a copy of results from a sanctioned tournament. If a club does not have qualifying scores, contact USCA for guidance.

If the club has not previously provided the university's Federal IRS letter of Tax Exemption, you must provide that information/documentation in order for the grant to be approved. The Federal IRS letter is a letter that states the college is a non-profit entity and is exempt from paying federal taxes. It is not a sales tax exemption form. Contact the administration office or your club sports office. They should be able to help you.
