High Performance Program Scholarships

The UTS High Performance Program (HPP) is a scholarship initiative that supports athletes who represent a high-performance sporting club within the UTS Sport network. The HPP leverages off the UTS Elite Athlete Program (EAP) to reward athletic potential otherwise not acknowledged solely by the EAP, more information on the HPP can be found here – https://activateuts.com.au/sport/eap-recruitment-2021/sport-club-videos

The HPP and EAP work together, meaning applicants are required to apply for the UTS Elite Athlete Program which opens annually on December 1st.

Talent Identification Program

The UTS Talent Identification Program (TIP) provides an opportunity for student athletes to test their athletic capabilities through a number of performance tests which will enable our testers and coaches from a range of targeted UTS sports clubs to identify potential talent transfer athletes.

Testing takes place at the newly built UTS Moore Park Sports Science Building and testing days are normally scheduled within the second half of the calendar year.
