The grants are available to promising young athletes between the ages of 12 and 20 who have already engaged in active sports as a member of a sports club and who need financial support for their hobby. Lumo’s and VVO’s tenants are given priority in the selection. Grants are awarded for both team and individual sports. In spring 2019, Lumo grants are awarded to 25 young athletes. The grant can be used for season fees, camps or equipment, for instance.
