Scottish athletes aged between 15 and 23 are now invited to join the application process for the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund annual grants.

The application process takes place in the autumn of each year and is available to both able-bodied and disability UK athletes – with 15 Scots having received assistance for the current year.

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.

If successful in the application process and a RPMF Grant is awarded the athlete shall be notified via an email to this same address. Similarly, if unsuccessful in the application and no grant is awarded, an email shall be sent to inform of the unsuccessful applicant.

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