Global Finals 2020 Financial Assistance Application
Thank you for taking the time to fill our financial assistance application. We will carefully consider the applications for all teams based on the following qualifications:
- Financial need. What expenses must the team cover themselves? Does the team have any financial hardships?
- Attendance at Global Finals. Has the team attended in the past? Did they receive financial assistance then?
- Geographic representation. Are there other teams from their location that will be attending?
- Essay. Does the team provide detailed and compelling reasons for how they would benefit from attending Global Finals?
Each application will be evaluated by multiple members of the DIHQ staff.
We hope to be able to start notifying teams about their assistance packages on or about April 9. However, we will not distribute financial assistance funds until after all Affiliates have completed their tournaments and after certified teams have had a chance to complete their applications. We will notify the Team Manager, via the email listed on this application, whether or not their team will receive financial assistance.
To supplement your application, you can ask your Affiliate or Regional Director to fill out a recommendation form on behalf of your team. While this recommendation is not required, having one will benefit your application.
Please fill out the following form to the best of your ability. If you have any questions about how to answer a portion of the application, email Kelsey Celek at
