Rusty Kanokogi Grant for US Female Judoka 2016

Dear Supporter,

The Rusty Kanokogi Fund for the Advancement of U.S. Judo was established in 2009 to provide direct financial assistance to aspiring female judo athletes with successful competitive records who have the potential to achieve even higher performance levels and rankings. Judoka in need of financial assistance for items such as travel, uniforms and specialized coaching may request up to $5,000. Online applications must be submitted by 5p.m. EST on Friday,April 1, 2016. Grants will be awarded during the second quarter of 2016.

We recognize that you have a great organization for women and men alike that aims to make them better judo competitors. Because of this, we are asking for your help in promoting this valuable and exciting opportunity. Here’s what we are asking you to do: Place a brief grant description on your Web site, in your schedule/events calendar or in your e-newsletter, and link it to the guidelines and application for the Rusty Kanokogi Fund for the Advancement of U.S. Women’s Judo Grant.

Also, discussing this grant with any and all female judo competitors that you know would help spread the word immensely. We want to make this as easy as possible, so feel free to use the grant description provided (see below electronic signature).

Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated, and we would like to thank you for your support.
