The National Shooting Sports Foundation is making a total of $100,000 in grants available to public and private colleges for start-ups of new target-shooting clubs and teams.

Watch a brief video about the Collegiate Shooting Sports Initiative

The grants are provided through NSSF’s Collegiate Shooting Sports Initiative (CSSI), which has assisted more than 75 schools with building competitive and recreational shooting programs through more than $1 million in support. The program is credited with helping to spur growth in collegiate target shooting across the country.

Up to $10,000 will be awarded to each qualifying school. Grant guidelines and applications are available at www.nssf.org/college.

For those not sure how or where to begin with establishing a program, NSSF has developed a helpful brochure, “Establishing a College Shooting Sports Program .” The brochure contains guidance on starting competitive teams and recreational shooting clubs, and includes samples of membership forms and club bylaws.

Anyone interested in starting a college shotgun, rifle or pistol team or club can find resources and grant opportunities at www.nssf.org/college. Also, read the NSSF press release announcing these grants.
