HUNTER athletes could be among those who receive a boost towards their goal of representing Australia in the Olympic Games.
Last month, the Greater Building Society and Hunter Academy of Sports opened applications for the Olympic Sports Scholarships.
Each scholarship is worth $2000 and will cover some of athletes' expenses to reach their goal. Successful applicants will be chosen based on the potential they show as an international competitor.
The recipients will be announced on November 7 and be awarded by the academy. In addition, recipients will also be given advice from academy consultants on psychology, nutrition, physical fitness and injury prevention.
