The Government will expand the Sport Australia Hall of Fame mentoring program that partners Australia’s sporting heroes – Hall of Fame members – with young Australians who aspire to represent their country. Each year, 30 scholarships of $5,000 each will be awarded to athletes under the age of 21 who are competing at a minimum of international junior level in their chosen sport. This is an additional 25 scholarships per year.

Scholarship benefits include one-on-one mentoring from an inducted Hall of Fame member for 14 months, in addition to a one-off $5,000 sporting grant.
