Elite Athlete Housing Scholarship

In 2017, La Trobe Sport in conjunction with La Trobe Accommodation Services will introduce a new initiative to provide Elite Athlete Housing Scholarships to two members of the La Trobe Elite Athlete Program.


This scholarship was established to assist student athletes with extenuating circumstances and support them in their academic and sporting pursuits, through the provision of on campus residence.

The scholarship provides a single room in a College or Halls of Residence at La Trobe University's Bundoora or Bendigo campus for the period of one university year.

The Housing Scholarship is available to new students to La Trobe in 2017, who are eligible members of the La Trobe Elite Athlete Program (LEAP). In order to be considered for this scholarship, athletes must demonstrate considerable hardship and/or circumstance that would otherwise prevent them from undertaking tertiary study and continuing elite level sport.

Applications open January 3rd 2017.  Applicants must also apply to the La Trobe Elite Athlete Program.

To apply, athletes should contact the Elite Athlete Program coordinator at eliteathletes@latrobe.edu.au to obtain the application form.

Applications must be submitted with supporting documentation outlining how the housing scholarship will benefit the athlete in their academic and sporting endeavours, in relation to the personal hardships/circumstances.

Applications close January 20th 2017.  Late applications will not be accepted.
