A passion for sporting success is embedded in Australia's identity. Sportspeople are our heroes – we share their journeys and understand that becoming a champion is a full-time commitment.
For over 25 years, student athletes at the University of Sydney have been awarded sports scholarships. In 1990, three student athletes received support. Now, nearly 400 elite athletes are supported each year. These athletes face the unique challenge of managing an intense training and competition schedule, alongside their demanding academic endeavours.
Assisting the University’s sporting clubs and elite athletes who strive for brilliance in sport and academic has contributed to this success. The Elite Athlete Program provides a broad suite of invaluable services so our most promising athletes can reach their potential.
With your help, our goal is to raise $5 million by 2025.
As of August 2019, we have raised $1.563 million.
