Sports grants

The Foundation Midnight Sun Marathon awarded sports grants to young North Norwegian athletes for the first time in 2015. We have continued this good tradition also in 2016 and 2017. We are giving out a total of 100.000,- NOK divided on four sports grants at 25.000,- NOK for four youg, North Norwegian athletes who has excelled in their sports. The grants are awarded to younger athletes in the establishment phase and who belong at the top of their sports dicipline. The athlete must be able to present good regional/national results within their sport. Candidates are nominated by the public or their sport teams. Out of a final heat, the votes fom the public together with the votes of a jury will determine who will be awarded the MSM sport grant for the current year.


During Polar Night Halfmarathon, Samí week and Midnight Sun Marathon it is possible for the media to apply for accreditation through a form we will publish on our site. Information about the event and the collection of accreditation certificates will be sent by mail to those applying for accreditation throughout the year.
