The Elite Athlete Program aims to:

  • Provide excellent support and services to elite athletes to assist them in their concurrent pursuit of academic and sporting goals;

  • Encourage elite athletes to achieve outstanding academic results to facilitate an alternative vocation after their sporting career has finished; and

  • Assist in the promotion and development of Sydney University sports clubs through the attraction of elite athletes.


Pursuing academic and sporting goals simultaneously can be especially challenging. The right support and encouragement is crucial for you to achieve your ambitions. In 2015, approximately 400 student athletes, across more than 40 sports, received valuable assistance through gaining a Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness (SUSF) scholarship and thus membership to the Elite Athlete Program.

Members of the Elite Athlete Program enjoy a wide range of helpful student athlete benefits and services. These may include:

  • Financial assistance;
  • International travel grants;
  • Academic representation and counselling;
  • Tutoring;
  • Workshops and seminars;
  • Access to SUSF facilities;
  • Access to sports science services (dietician, sports psychology and strength and conditioning); and
  • Discounted rates on sports medicine services (through The Sports Clinic).
