SASI invites athletes who meet the criteria for an elite or country athlete scholarship to apply for this opportunity. The Individual Athlete Program (IAP) provides athletes with the potential to access funding, sport science servicing and high performance training facilities.
The IAP program provides support to talented athletes to continually improve their skills and ability in an environment that supports and encourages excellence.
Through this support, the program has made a positive and lasting difference for many South Australian athletes. No less than 20 Individual Athlete scholars were selected to represent Australia at the 2016 Rio Olympic/Paralympic Games with 5 claiming medals on a highly competitive world stage.
To find out if you are eligible for the program and further details, please see the link below. Please note that this year there is a new online application process and only online applications will be accepted. http://ors.sa.gov.au/funding?a=144892
