SASI Individual Athlete Program and Country Athlete Awards 2020

SASI Individual Athlete Program scholarship applications for 2020 will open on 4 September.

The SASI Individual Athlete Program provides a 12 month athlete scholarship including financial support and targeted performance support services to high performance athletes who are committed to taking their ability to the highest national and international levels. The Individual Athlete Scholarships and the Country Athlete Awards are open to individuals competing in an Olympic, Paralympic or Commonwealth Games sport and discipline.

Scholarships are typically awarded to South Australian elite senior athletes and targeted junior high performance athletes. Country Athlete awards are also offered to South Australian junior athletes who have been identified as having the potential to progress into the senior ranks.

To align with the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) sport categorisation strategy, athletes who have a current categorisation with their National Sporting Organisation (NSO) will be prioritised in the review process.
