If you are applying for a Grant you are also able to nominate yourself for the Syd Corser Scholarship using the same application form.
CRITERIA FOR SELECTION (Individuals and Teams)
Grant applications for Individuals are available to all West Australian Sailors who are current members of an Australian Sailing affiliated club.
An individual/team must have proven performance at a National Level in their area of endeavour and be able to continue and progress towards excellence at an International level.
We encourage you to please make sure all information is correct and relevant so The Ron Tough Yachting Foundation can make a fair review of your application. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
YACHT CLUBS, CLASS ASSOCIATIONS (and other volunteer organisations)
Grants applications are also invited from Yacht Clubs and Class Associations to assist with the provision of essential equipment and training programs that increase participation and skills within our sport. The Ron Tough Yachting Foundation recognises the essential role played by many of the volunteer based organisations within sailing that have limited access to funding and welcomes applications for assistance.
PRESENTATION OF THE GRANT
Grants will be announced at the annual Ron Tough Yachting Foundation Awards’ night to be held at the South of Perth Yacht Club on Thursday April 8, 2021. Applicants will be notified by email if they are either successful or unsuccessful after the selection process March 8, 2021.
Funds awarded to Grant applicants will be retained initially by RTYF and paid (via EFT) once confirmation of the recipient’s fulfilment of their obligations (as detailed in their application) has been received and deemed satisfactory.
