Our high performance athletes have demonstrated the drive, dedication, and talent to be chosen as Sport Aid recipients. Below explains how athletes can be considered for support.

Nominations for assistance must be made via the Head of Performance of a Governing Body of Sport and upon submission of an application for support, the Sport Aid Committee will consider the application and the athlete may be invited to undergo an assessment with members of the Institute Support Team.
