The NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) has developed an Individual Scholarship Program that aims to develop and assist identified high performance NSW Athletes with a Disability (AWD) to achieve excellence and success at the both the national and international level.
The focus of the AWD program is to prepare athletes for selection to the Paralympic Games and to increase the number of NSW athletes achieving international medal-winning and finalist performances at significant events. The NSWIS AWD Program targets athletes who are members of the Australian Paralympic Committee’s (APC) Paralympic Preparation Program (PPP).
The NSWIS provides AWD scholarship athletes with access to competition and training support, as well as a broad range of support services.
National Sporting Organisations and National Disability Sporting Organisations can nominate potential scholarship holders based on performance relative to the selection criteria. The Australian Paralympic Committee will provide final endorsement of nominations prior to scholarships being offered.
Generally, the AWD scholarship period is from 1st January - 31st December each year.
