Applications close Monday July 10th 2017  

Australian junior athletes (U/21) are invited to apply for The Sport Australia Hall of Fame (SAHOF) Scholarship & Mentoring Program annually. 

The Sport Australia Hall of Fame’s Vision is to preserve and celebrate the history of Australian Sport and to excite the next generation of Australians to achieve their potential both in sport and life.

The Scholarship & Mentoring Program is one opportunity to continue achieving our Vision by helping young Australians achieve at the highest level of their sport. The Scholarship Program will provide encouragement, support and funding for 12 months.

Most importantly, Scholarship Holders will enjoy unrivalled access to, and personal one-on-one mentoring from an Inducted SAHOF Member, surely no greater way to inspire young sportspeople to fulfil their potential.

Since the introduction of the Program in 2006, over 60 young Australian athletes (Scholarship List) have benefited from the opportunity of a lifetime to draw on the experience and wisdom of The Sport Australia Hall of Fame Members in addition to the valuable cash grant and international airfare. 

The success of this Program is outstanding, with 20 past Scholarship recipients representing Australia at the 2016 Rio Olympic and Paralympic Games and 17 at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The eligibility criteria and nomination forms are available here: Nomination Information.
