2021 Scholarship & Mentoring Program
2021 Scholarship & Mentoring Program

Australian junior athletes (U21) are invited to apply for the 2021 Sport Australia Hall of Fame Scholarship & Mentoring Program.

The Sport Australia Hall of Fame (SAHOF) Scholarship and Mentoring Program commenced in 2006. It was born from the desire of our Member’s to leave a legacy greater than their sporting achievements alone.

Our Mentors’ unique value is their ability to be role models, not just to those looking to follow in their athletic footsteps, but also to the broader community. People from all walks of life can learn from their mindset – using their values of perseverance and commitment to achieve their own life and sporting goals.

The SAHOF Scholarship & Mentoring Program is one of the most elite mentoring programs in Australia, if not the world. Connecting the nation’s next generation of talent with the greats of Australian sport and providing unrivaled access to one-on-one mentoring from a SAHOF Member (Tier 1); there is surely no greater way to inspire young Australians to fulfill their potential.

Each Scholarship will apply from selection date until December 31, 2021.

The 2021 SAHOF Scholarship & Mentoring Program has expanded to three Tiers which means; more Scholarships granted, greater financial support and an increase in Scholarship Recipients who will be Mentored by an Australian great – a SAHOF Member.

Tier 1 Inclusions
Six successful recipients will receive:
– One-on-one personal mentoring by a Member of SAHOF
– $10,000 sporting expense grant

Tier 2 Inclusions
Ten successful recipients will receive:
– $5,000 sporting expense grant

Tier 3 Inclusions
A select number of successful recipients will receive:
– A sporting expense grant up to $3,000
(Dollar amount and number of recipients will be determined at the discretion of the Committee.)

*Unsuccessful recipients of Tier 1 and Tier 2 will be automatically considered for Tier 3.
*All applicants must meet eligibility criteria before submitting. Terms and conditions apply.

Past Scholarship Holder Experiences

“When I applied for this Scholarship, I didn’t really know what I was signing up for as I did not think in a million years I would win. It has been a dream come true working with Nick as my mentor as he has opened my eyes to elite sports in a totally new light. He has been probably the most helpful person preparing me for the PyeongChang Paralympic Winter Games.

I’m very lucky to be able to have him as a mentor and friend. He has made me more confident in my competition, taught me so much and I will take all of his advice for the rest of my career. Nick has become a true friend as well, we have a great relationship and I can talk to him easily. I valued my time with Nick, and I know it is not going to end.”

2018 Scholarship Holder Ben Tudhope  (Snowboarding), revealing the impact his Mentor, Nick Farr-Jones AM (Rugby Union) had on him.

“I knew that if I’ve got someone like him looking out for me, I can do anything.”
