This is a fantastic opportunity for our young North Queensland Athletes to develop there sporting careers and further their education whilst remaining in North Queensland. Many of our young regional athletes fail to reach their full potential due to the circumstances associated with residing in North Queensland. Our young athletes are challenged with the decision to relocate at an early age generally straight out of school to chase their aspirations as an elite athlete. This proves too much for some who succumb to the situation and fail to reach their objectives.

The High Performance Sports Scholarship Program is a very unique opportunity for our young NQ Athletes providing financial support within the NQ region. A number of sporting codes have developed strong resources and infrastructure in regional North Queensland which allows athletes to develop whilst residing in NQ.

Initially we are providing 3 scholarships for 2019 and would anticipate extending these in 2020.

Additional support from the corporate sector would assist with the expansion of the project.

We encourage you to promote this program to your sporting communities.
