US Quidditch Cup Open Division Grant

 

USQ will review applications to provide a grant to a collegiate team planning to compete in the open division of US Quidditch Cup 13. It is not a tournament format, and no champion will be crowned in this division. It will be an opportunity for teams of all levels to be able to participate in the national championship and gain experience against opponents from different regions. This relates directly to USQ’s strategic plan, which has a focus on providing more competitive opportunities for all members. 

This grant covers the registration cost for your team for USQ Cup 13. Any questions can be directed to membership@usquidditch.org

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

A registered member team with USQ. Team must be part of the collegiate division, and must have competed at a USQ Regional Championship during the 2019-20 season. Teams that have already received a member grant from USQ within the previous two seasons are ineligible to apply. 

HOW ARE APPLICATIONS EVALUATED?

Complete applications will be evaluated by impartial USQ staff and membership department volunteers.
