Selection process:

Athletes that are eligible for a TASS 2012 scholarship will be competing at a high level and already known by their NGB. The NGB is therefore best placed to select the appropriate athletes. The selection process consists of three stages.
  1. NGB nominates athletes by submitting a 2012 Athlete Registration form. This provides the TASS management with enough information to decide if an athlete is eligible for TASS 2012.
  2. If an application passes stage one, NGB’s then have to complete a 2012 athlete subjective criteria form. This provides NGB’s with the opportunity to outline why an athlete should receive the award and detail how the award should be used and how it will help the athlete to achieve their goals.
  3. The TASS management then assess each application considering current performance, existing support, and NGB support and infrastructure. This procedure is carried out in association with UK sport.
