The application process for the 2018 RPMF Grants to young athletes in need will open up on Friday 16th September and shall remain open until midnight on Sunday 19th November, so athletes will have plenty of time to get their applications completed.
The RPMF Grants Committee shall meet and review all the applications in early December so successful applicants can expect to be informed by the beginning of 2018, to ensure that the new year gets off to a flying start.
The online application process can be found on the Applying for a Grant page on and after 16th September.
The Ron Pickering Memorial Fund has a long history of supporting young athletes since its launch in 1991, including many of the athletes currently making up the British Athletics Team at all age levels. At the London 2017 World Championships for example, more than half the team had received support from the RPMF at some point during their development to senior athletes. We like to think that our support at the right time helped those athletes to continue to develop their talent and achieve all their goals from the wonderful sport of Athletics, just as Ron Pickering would have wanted.
