    I would not have been able to pursue my education while chasing my gold medal dreams without the support of the USOPC's Tuition Grants.

    • Team USA Tuition Grants

      Athlete Services awards over $800 thousand annually to Team USA athletes for education in the form of tuition grants. The Team USA Tuition Grants allow athletes to further their education in preparation for lifelong career goals by defraying a portion of athletes’ tuition costs. This can take the form of traditional 2-and 4-year undergraduate or graduate degrees, industry specific certificates, professional development courses, job readiness training courses, and other educational courses that will lead to the advancement of the athlete’s career aspirations. *Note: The Team USA Tuition Grant does not support high school programs.*
