The deadline to apply is 5 pm Tuesday, August 8. Applications must be submitted through Adirondack Foundation’s Online Grants Manager.

UISF focuses on the greater Tri-Lakes and Olympic regions and has two main goals for supporting athletes. One is to provide necessary support to local nonprofit organizations that promote athleticism and engage area youth in traditional summer and winter sports, thus fostering the next generation of competitive athletes. The second goal is to provide financial support for competitive, local, young athletes with regional, national and international promise in traditional winter and summer sports. Preference is given to athletes with the most promise and greatest financial need, and those who demonstrate a strong commitment to community service.
