Meet our students
As a first-year student transitioning between high school and university, the La Trobe Elite Athlete Program has given me the support, assistance and flexibility I need to successfully balance my studies around my elite sporting commitments. As a recipient of the Michael Malthouse Elite Sport Scholarship in 2020, it is wonderful to be recognised not only for my sporting ability, but also my academic achievements through some financial assistance.
LEAP has gifted me opportunity to pursue my sporting aspirations while continuing to study full time. Without this program, I would not be able to compete at an international level and I'm very thankful for the support I've received throughout my degree.
