Karate Canada is proud to offer for the second time the ‘Stay in the Fight Bursary’, a new initiative made possible with the generous support of the government of Canada. This program will help provide financial support to female athletes transitioning from competition to other leadership roles within the sport of karate in Canada.

Many female athletes participating in competitive karate unfortunately end their affiliation with the sport once they stop competing; this initiative aims to inspire these athletes to consider and prepare for different leadership roles such as coaching, officiating or volunteering in governance or sport promotion within the local and national community. Up to five (5) approved recipients will receive a bursary of up to $1,800 each.

The deadline to apply is February 7th, 2021.
