The VIS Individual Athlete Scholarships are offered annually to athletes from sports which do not have a VIS Tier 1 program. The program features a range of Australia’s leading high performance athletes across numerous Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth sports.

The athletes, who are all achieving excellent results in senior national and international competition, are able to access the full range of comprehensive performance services as well as utilising the outstanding training and recovery facilities at the VIS headquarters at Lakeside Stadium.
