Macquarie elite athletes came together for the recent launch of the 2015 Sport Scholarship Program.
The annual event welcomed our 2015 Sport Scholars with an evening of recognition, praise and celebration, congratulating Category 1 and 2 Sport Scholars on their successes in front of their peers.
“The Sport Scholarship accolade is a proactive program demonstrating Macquarie University’s support for its elite student athletes in achieving both their sporting and academic goals,” said Cindy Hoad, General Manager – Sport and Recreation.
In 2014 Macquarie supported 86 National and State level athletes including Olympians and National Champions along with over 20 emerging athletes.
“Our Scholars are a very diverse group of athletes and cover a wide range of sports,” said Cindy.
As well as being well-represented in the more mainstream areas of athletics, swimming and all forms of football, our students are also high achievers in dragon boat racing, surf ski ocean racing, ultimate frisbee, sport aerobics, modern pentathlon, surf life saving and football refereeing.
