Wrestling Grant Program

The purpose of this grant program is to establish or maintain intercollegiate wrestling programs.  

Passed in 2023, the “Charles Cate II Act” (SB 5687) establishes the postsecondary wresting grant program, setting aside funds that may be used for purposes including, but not limited to, support of one-time startup costs, equipment, and student scholarships.

WSAC provides grants to eligible public institutions, including community and technical colleges and baccalaureate institutions.
