Supporting the Olympic Dream
Every year since establishment, the New York State Taekwondo Federation has been financially supporting athletes on their Olympic Dream. In 2012, our federation made a $10,000 donation to the 2012 US Olympic Taekwondo Team. Along the way, we have supported many top athletes from the state of New York through our federation. One of our state missions is to support our grassroots and developmental athletes, and provide assistance in their training towards their goal of becoming an Olympic Champion. The journey is long, but graspable. The athletes take much of their time training, that it is very difficult to be financially capable of participating in various events.
New York State Taekwondo Federation Scholarship Requirement is as followed: 15-17 Junior or 17-32 Senior Black Belt Sparring athletes who qualified/participated at our USAT New York State Championships AND medaled at USAT National Championships or made the National Team Trials. Online scholarship application must be filled out and sent to our email to be reviewed by our committee members. Following review, athletes are chosen for scholarship.
