UOW – PART OF THE ELITE ATHLETE EDUCATION NETWORK
The Elite Athlete Education Network (EAEN) program is an initiative of the Australian Sports Commission that allows Australia’s elite athletes to achieve academic excellence while also pursuing a sporting career.
There are currently over 50 elite athletes studying at the University who are engaged nationally and internationally in a broad range of sports. A range of supports are available to registered elite athletes including the opportunity to apply for scholarships offered through the University, sponsored by the NAB.

National senior squad members or athletes compete at a national senior level may also be eligible.
