Australian Junior Athletes (u21) are invited to apply for the 2019 Sport Australia Hall of Fame Scholarship & Mentoring Program.
The Sport Australia Hall of Fame (SAHOF) Scholarship and Mentoring Program, which commenced in 2006, was bred from the desire of their Member’s to leave a legacy greater than their sporting achievements alone.
Their value as role models, not only to those that want to follow in their athletic footsteps, but also to the broader community who can learn from their mindset, perseverance and commitment to achieve their own life’s goals is unique.
The Program, is one of the most exceptional in this country as it personally connects the nation’s next wave of talent with great Australian sporting role models, providing unrivaled access to and personal one-on-one mentoring from an Inducted SAHOF Member.
Since the introduction of the Program in 2006, over 71 young Australian athletes (Scholarship List) across 33 sports have benefited from the opportunity to draw on the experience and wisdom of the SAHOF Members in addition to the cash grant.
The success of the program saw 15 scholarship holders compete at Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in April; amongst them 100m & 200m backstroke silver medallist Brad Woodward and Georgia Sheehan who claimed gold in the 3m synchro springboard final.
