Support through the individual athlete scholarship program is offered annually to athletes from sports which do not have a Tier 1 program.
AIS athlete categorisation identifies athletes who are eligible for individual scholarships.
From 2017, the following criteria apply:
Foundation Sports – Podium/Podium Ready/Podium Potential, Other Sports – Podium only.
Successful VIS athletes with an Individual Scholarship come from sports such as badminton, boxing, skateboarding, snowboarding, table tennis, and many more.
