 Generous Chargers Champions Grant Applications Now Available

​​Grant applications are now available in the San Diego Chargers' extremely generous Chargers Champions Program, which has awarded more than $4 million to local schools since the 2000-2001 school year.

Each year Chargers Champions provides grants of up to $75,000 to high schools, up to $40,000 for middle schools and up to $30,000 for elementary schools. Schools throughout the county have been awarded Chargers Champions grants and have transformed their schools’ fitness and nutrition programs as a result of the grant program.

Schools must complete the written application for consideration, and all applications must be postmarked on or before June 29, 2012 to be considered.
