Athletes with an individual scholarship, compete in sports which do not have a Tier 1 sports program with the VIS.
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, fencing, judo, shooting, snowboarding, table tennis, synchronised swimming, taekwondo and many more.
