USA Archery Awards Six Grants for Collegiate Archery Program Start-Up

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - Through contributions from Easton Foundations, USA Archery was able to provide a start-up grant to six colleges across the country to assist them in implementing a Collegiate Archery Program. 

USA Archery’s Collegiate Archery Program is for students enrolled in a college or university. Collegiate Archery Programs can be varsity teams with scholarships, club sports or student organizations on campus. Archery provides students a community with friendships that last a lifetime. This community helps with the stresses and pressures of rigorous academic pursuits, giving college students the perfect outlet to continue participating in this lifetime sport. 

2022 awardees included:

  • Daemen University, New York
  • Carson-Newman University, Tennessee
  • Indiana Tech, Indiana
  • Laramie County Community College, Wyoming
  • Tusculum University, Tennessee
  • William Woods University, Missouri

Jessie Biggs, Director of Athletics at Indiana Tech commented, "USA Archery and its staff have been instrumental in the development stages of our new Archery program here at Indiana Tech. The College Archery program grant is a huge boost and benefit to starting a new program.  It will allow us to provide our students a wonderful Collegiate Archery experience.  USA Archery, and especially their Indiana State Association North Region Representative, Scott Eidson, have been very proactive in helping and educating us on what will be needed to make this program successful.  Their overall investment in seeing Collegiate Archery thrive and grow is evident.” 

Each program received a full equipment kit, as well as targets and stands. The Collegiate Archery Program is an integral piece of USA Archery’s athlete development pipeline, allowing athletes to continue to train at high levels while pursuing their degree. Collegiate archers can participate at local, state, regional, national, and international collegiate archery events, and are eligible to compete to earn spots on the Olympic and Paralympic teams.
