Submissions for 2015 grant applications are open until February 1, 2015. Grant recipients will be announced by March 1, 2015.

NK has increased this year’s offerings to almost $10,000 worth of equipment to be provided to athletes and programs in need.

Nielsen-Kellerman (NK) has opened its grant application program for the eighth consecutive year. Each year, NK receives hundreds of requests for product donations to support athletes and rowing programs that are in need of performance monitoring equipment to help bring their skills to the next level. In response, the leader in sports performance electronics has initiated grant programs as a way to support the rowing and paddling community. NK has increased this year’s offerings to almost $10,000 worth of equipment to be provided to athletes and programs in need. Submissions will be evaluated based on goals, training, how NK's equipment will help and barriers to making the purchase.

This year, available program grants will support a total of 10 rowing programs eligible to receive a $500 grant toward NK products. In addition, NK will be issuing 10 grants to athletes who will all receive a SpeedCoach® GPS model 2 with Training Pack.

Athletes and coaches can visit to fill out a grant application. Tell NK your story and let us know why you really deserve the products you need! Athlete grant recipients will be chosen by NK and announced March 1st, 2015.
