Sport scholarships

Applications are now open for 2017 sport scholarships

We support elite athletes either entering or continuing a course at Macquarie University. The program is focused on assisting athletes in their desire to combine high performance sport involvement with a tertiary education.

Macquarie University is a member of the Elite Athlete Friendly University (EAFU) network, which means that our sport scholars have access to a high level of support to assist in achieving sporting and academic success during their time at university.

In 2016, Macquarie University supported 120 international, national and state level athletes, including Olympians and National Champions, along with over 50 emerging athletes.

Our Macquarie University Sport Scholarships exhibit a diverse range of sports, including; Motorsports, Sailing, Equestrian, Ice Hockey, Martial Arts, Wakeboarding, Floorball and Target Rifle, as well as an abundance of more ‘traditional’ sports.

We understand the challenges students face in pursuing both academic and sporting goals simultaneously, and the Sport Scholarship program provides students with the tools and support services to balance success in both areas.
