Dear Friends
 
The 
FINA Scholarship Programme was created to give technical and financial assistance to swimmers who 
se times 
are 
presently between the "S" Qualifying Standard and the "B" Qualifying Standard and to help them t
o qualify for FINA World Championships and the Olympic Games. The 
S
 cholarships Programme was launched in June 2013 
and 
FINA 
has 
provide 
d
  since then annual scholarships for a duration of 3-12 months to selected swimmers. The previous four editions of the Programme proved very beneficial to swimmers who participated in them. 
Marcelo 
Acosta 
of El Salvador 
is a shining example of a swimmer from our own region whose time significantly improved as a result of participating in 
the 2015
  edition of the Programme 
and assisted him 
to qualify 
with an A Standard for the 2016 Rio Olympics
 
 
From our region, Maria Garcia of Peru, Leandro Costabile of Uruguay, Felix Delron of GrenadaJoseph de Nobrega of Guyana, Papy Dossous of Haiti, Daniel Jacobs of Aruba, Katie Kyle of St. Lucia, Lismar Lyon of Venezuela, Matheo Mateos of Paraguay, Stefano Mitchell of Antigua & Barbuda, Juan Morales of Colombia, Helena Moreno of Costa Rica, Sara Pastrana of Honduras, Jose Quintanilla of Bolivia and Alex Sobers of Barbados all received 2018 scholarships. There has been more swimmers from our continental organization enrolled in this Scholarship programme than from any other continent and UANA hopes that your federation will utilize this outstanding opportunity.
 
FINA is 
now 
ready to receive applications for the 5th 
(2019) 
edition of the Programme and would have sent the related documentation 
to your federation
 . UANA wishes to highlight the tremendous value 
 
of this particular Programme to swimmers and wishes to 
strongly 
urge your federation to take advantage of this superb opportunity 
in 2019
 .  
It will be of tremendous value to your swimmers as they prepare for Gwangju 2019, Lima 2019 and Tokyo 2020.
 
For your easy reference I have attached the related documents that were already sent to your federation. Permit me to emphasize that all related information must reach FINA before the August 31 deadline and that the swimmer's profile must be updated on the FINA GMS. Please be careful to submit all required information such as preferred training option, reference letter from coach/training centre, swimmer's cover letter, swimmer's CV and be sure to name your application as specified in the FINA cover letter.
 
UANA wishes your federation every success in obtaining a 2019 scholarship and reminds you not to hesitate to ask us for any help you may need.
 
Best regards
Errol Clarke
Secretary Treasurer of UANA
