Olympic Solidarity is the IOC’s development programme dedicated to ensuring the universality of the Olympic Games by providing funding and technical, financial and administrative support to athletes, coaches, sports administrators and NOCs most in need of assistance. The total budget for Olympic Solidarity’s 2021-24 cycle is USD 590 million, highlighting the IOC’s commitment to helping everyone within the Olympic Movement.
Olympic Solidarity has two main aims: helping NOCs fulfil their Olympic mission, and helping you achieve your Olympic dreams. It works closely with NOCs, International Federations and Continental Associations to develop their administrative structures, promote the Olympic values throughout their organisations and ensure the successful running of athlete development programmes.
It achieves these aims through a multi-faceted series of programmes, courses, scholarships and grants. These support structures could help you and your entourage on your sporting journey – no matter where you are in the world, what sport you participate in, nor what stage of your career you’re at.
