Excellence in sport is integral to the University of Sydney’s rich and diverse identity. Assisting the University’s sporting clubs and elite athletes who strive for brilliance in academia and sport has contributed to this success. For over 25 years, Sydney University student athletes have been awarded sports scholarships. In 1990, three student athletes received support. Now, nearly 400 elite athletes are supported each year.
We have seen the emergence and achievement of numerous Olympians and Paralympians, world title holders, world record breakers, national representatives, and club and state champions. However, importantly, these athletes are also outstanding university students, graduates, industry leaders and community frontrunners.
We hope that with your philanthropic donations, we can reach $5 million by 2025 with at least $2 million of this amount reached by 2020.
Your gift will help to ensure that excellence in sport and tertiary studies remains achievable for the University of Sydney’s athletes and sporting clubs. Enable remarkable achievement, bright futures and the University of Sydney’s tradition of success in sport.
