2023 NK Grant Programs Are Now Accepting Applications

Welcome to the NK Sports Rowing Grant Program! We are excited to announce a major change in our program that will allow us to better support the rowing community. In response to feedback from applicants and to provide more opportunities for funding, we have decided to move from our previous annual submission process to a quarterly basis. This means that we will now be accepting grant applications four times a year, providing more chances for rowing organizations and individuals to receive the support they need. We believe this change will allow us to better serve the rowing community and help more individuals and organizations achieve their goals.

Now Accepting Applications!
