The Sport Australia Hall of Fame (SAHOF) Scholarship and Mentoring Program was introduced to support the desire of our Members as Mentors, to leave a legacy that’s greater than their sporting achievements alone.

Our Mentors’ unique value is their ability to be role models, not just to those looking to follow in their athletic footsteps, but also in the broader community. People from all walks of life can learn from them about mindset, and use their values of perseverance and commitment to achieve their own goals in life and in sport.

The SAHOF Scholarship & Mentoring Program sits among the most elite programs in Australia, if not the world. Connecting the nation’s next generation of athletic talent with the greats of Australian sport and providing Tier 1 Scholarship Holders with unrivalled access to one-on-one mentoring from a SAHOF Member; a once in a life time opportunity.

The Program, with thanks to Sport Australia, and now in its 17th year, has a three tiered system, offering 32 Scholarships in total to Australian athletes aged between 15 – 21.
