For athletes

The Young Athletes Travel Subsidy (travel subsidy) replaced the Young Athlete Assistance Program on 1 July 2015 and aims to foster the development of young athletes and support elite athlete pathways by providing financial assistance to help alleviate the costs associated with attending championship events.

Athlete scholarships are available through the Australian Institute of Sport.

The Elite Indigenous Travel and Accommodation Assistance Program helps Indigenous people with travel costs (petrol or air travel) and accommodation expenses.

The state sport and recreation organisation for your activity may have information about what funding is available for your chosen sport.

Your local council may offer financial help for athletes.
