Funding and Tuition Costs

International Candidates

The course fee is USD 8,500, which includes the cost of tuition, shared accommodation, meals, health insurance, and internal transportation including the cost of air travel to Colorado Springs and the apprenticeship site. NOCs interested in benefiting from an Olympic Solidarity scholarship to cover the costs of tuition and the international airline ticket from their home country to the Lausanne module should send forth an application to Olympic Solidarity via the Olympic Scholarships for Coaches Program (application available on the NOC extranet). NOC applications will be managed by Olympic Solidarity following the normal procedures. Accepted candidates will be provided with a scholarship from the USOC which contributes towards the costs of their stay at the U.S. Olympic Training Center module, and the round-trip international airline ticket from their home country to the United States (paid for by the USOC).

National Candidates (U.S. Resident)

The course fee is USD 10,500, and if selected for the program will be eligible for a scholarship from by the United States Olympic Committee for the cost of the program. Program costs include the cost of tuition, shared accommodation, meals, health insurance, transportation to Colorado Springs, apprentice site and internal transportation including the cost of air travel to Lausanne, Switzerland for Module 4. *Note: US candidates costs are higher as the scholarship includes the cost of the airline tickets to the Lausanne module.

U.S. candidates are funded by USOC and do not qualify for an Olympic Solidarity scholarship.
