For the 2023-2024 season, the Capitol Division is pleased to make developmental grants of $300.00 available to the member clubs. Member clubs are eligible for developmental grants once every two seasons. Collegiate/university clubs may apply every year. These grants are being made to fulfill our purposes and objectives as outlined in our bylaws, in particular our missions to support, enhance and develop the sport of fencing and to assist Divisional fencers to reach their full potential in fencing. These grants should not be used for ordinary club expenses such as rent or US Fencing membership; rather the clubs should use these funds to enhance the experience of Divisional fencers in the spirit of our bylaws. One grant will be available to each club.
The list below gives a few examples of ways that these funds could be used. This list includes suggestions, but the committee is open to other uses:
Collegiate/university clubs are also eligible to be reimbursed for their collegiate/university USA Fencing club membership fee ($199.00) each season.
In order to receive these grants, the club representative should submit a proposal on the Capitol Division Developmental Grant Application to the Capitol Division's Developmental Committee. The proposal will be submitted to the rest of the Executive Committee. If the proposal is approved, the club representative should submit receipts for the expenses covered by the grant and a check will be sent to the member club.
The grant application form and receipts should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to:
The deadline for grant application is June 15.
