Counsilman Grant
Since 1994, swimmers in our LSC have benefited from Doc and Marge Counsilman’s generosity and commitment to Indiana athletes through this program. 
The award has been established to help defray the cost of training, equipment and travel expenses related to competitions to any swimmer, thirteen years of age or older , who has achieved National AAA Motivational Time Standards, or better, and who qualifies on the basis of the following criteria:
1.    The applicant must be a legal resident of Indiana and a member of Indiana Swimming for at least 2 years.
2.    Must demonstrate Initiative, Commitment, and Potential within the AAA time standard
3.    Must demonstrate financial need
Applicants must be nominated for funding by a person who is affiliated with an Indiana Swimming club.
A nominator's signature is required to process the application. In order to avoid any conflict of interest, members of the Counsilman Grant Committee cannot participate in the evaluation of an athlete they have personally nominated for funding.
ISI will issue up to 3 grants per season and more as the Counsilman Grant Committee deems reasonable. Each Grant may be as much as, but no more than, $500 per season. Applicants should be aware that grant support is taxable income.
