Elite Athlete Program

2021 Applications are now open. Apply now for the UTS EAP.

Over the years, UTS Sport has supported Olympians, World and National Champions and National and State level representatives. In 2020, we supported the largest number of athletes to date, providing support to over 350 athletes across 45 different sports.

Following the principles of the Elite Athlete Education Network, our program has an overriding objective to assist our student athletes in combining high-performance sport and a tertiary education. In order to assist students with this balancing act, a number of programs have been established by ActivateUTS via UTS Sport providing support to high achievers in a wide range of sporting pursuits through the UTS Elite Athlete Program (UTS EAP).

The UTS Elite Athlete Program encompasses the following programs to support athletes;

  • Elite Athlete Program
  • Emerging Athlete Program
  • High Performance Program
  • Nationals Scholarship Program

All applicants need only to complete one general application for the UTS EAP.

If you are an elite athlete wanting to find the perfect balance to achieve your academic and sporting goals, then the UTS EAP is for you.
