UTS EAP Housing Scholarship

From the Union:

We are very excited to announce a brand new element to the UTS EAP for 2013, that we would love you to circulate to your club members.

In conjunction with UTS Housing, we will be offering two new scholarships that will provide two UTS student athletes with a completely paid-for room each at UTS Housing for one university year.

Please note, applicants must be eligible for the Elite Athlete Program (so competing at a minimum of State level) and must submit a number of supporting documents to go with their application: written documentation from a State or National sporting body or Institute, a reference from a coach, a sporting resume, action photos, a passport sized photo and a one page statement outlining the reasons why a scholarship at UTS Housing would assist in their academic and sporting career.

Applications are open now and close on the 18th January 2013 at 5pm. If you are promoting this to potential new UTS students, main round offers come out on the 16th January, so make sure they are aware of this!

Applications will go to the Sports Management Committee, and the two successful applicants will be notified shortly after the closing date. Please note, if an applicant is not successful in gaining an EAP Housing Scholarship, they will automatically be considered for a 2013 Elite or Emerging Athlete Scholarship, and need not reapply.

Further information and the online application form is here:

Feel free to pass on to anyone in your networks that you may think would be interested.

There is also a PDF flyer.
