When the application process is open an athlete will be able to apply directly using the online application form. No other method of application will be accepted and the application process is only available during this time.

The selection process then takes place in early December and the announcements of the award recipients is usually made at the end of December or early January.

Similarly, if unsuccessful in the application and no grant is awarded, an email shall be sent to inform of the unsuccessful applicant.

Please understand that the RPMF fund recieves many applications and the Grants Committee looks closely at every application and a decision is made on the basis of not only talent, but also such qualities as need and continued progress within the sport.

Funds are limited but the committee do try to help as many athletes as reasonably possible within our limits and guidelines.
