Sponsorship for young people participating in sports championships

If you are a young person (or a parent of a young person) aged between 12 and 18 years and need financial assistance towards the cost of travel, accommodation, uniforms or equipment to participate in a state, national or international sporting championship, then the Australian Sports Commission may be able to help!


Note:  The Commission also has other grants for sports leadership, women in sports, and others.  Please visit their website for more information.

When should you apply?

Applications should be submitted once you have been selected to attend the championships and your participation has been confirmed.  Applications submitted 6 months or more in advance of the competition may be moved into the following round of assessment at the discretion of the ASC.  You must submit your application online before the commencement date of the championships. Applications will not be considered if lodged after the commencement of the championships and the online application will not allow applicants to apply after the championships have commenced. Saved applications must be completed and submitted prior to the championships commencing to be eligible.

What is the value of the individual and team grants?

Grants of $500 are available for successful individual applicants, and $3000 for successful team applications.

What are the grants intended for?

Grants can contribute towards the cost of travel, accommodation, uniforms or equipment for your participation at the nominated championships.
