2020 Sports Scholarship and Elite Athlete Performers Scheme
Applications for Sport Scholarships and EAAP (additional points due to adjustment factors) are now open.
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 2019, Macquarie University offered elite athlete support to 230 students either entering or continuing a course at the University. A total 195 National and State level athletes were awarded Macquarie University 'Elite' or 'Emerging' Sport Scholarships.
Our Macquarie University Sport Scholarships exhibit a diverse range of sports, including Sailing, Equestrian, Martial Arts, Wakeboarding and Floorball, as well as a number of full time professional 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.
