With the release of HSC results, many of Australia’s best and brightest are now thinking what next? It is little known that the University of Sydney has scholarships available for the next generation of elite athletes and Olympians.
For over a century, sport has been a component of the student experience at the University of Sydney. The University boasts more than 300 Australian
Representatives, including 115 Olympians and more than 100 Wallabies. Since its inception in 1990, the Elite Athlete Program has become a leader in the provision of services to elite athletes.
This year, more than 260 students across 28 sports received financial sporting scholarships. A further 53 students were offered places in our Talented Athlete Program for emerging athletes.
In 2010, the development of a new national university sailing championship made significant strides. Sydney Uni students competed at the Australian University Fleet Racing Championship as well as the inaugural Match Racing and Teams Racing Championship events at the Australian University Games in Perth.
