Successful applicants will receive a monetary grant. This can be used towards the cost of:

  • travel;
  • accommodation;
  • uniforms; or
  • equipment.

The applicant must be competing, coaching or officiating at an event endorsed by an official National Sporting Organisation (NSO).

Applications must be completed and submitted prior to the event. For further information on the program, please see the Australian Sports Commission website.
