When to submit an application

You should submit an application:

  • once you have been selected to attend the championships and your participation has been confirmed; and
  • before the championships commence.

Note: Applications made for competitions more than six months in advance may be assessed in a later round closer to the competition date.

Saving an Application

You will be able to save the application from step 6 using the ‘Save Application Now’ button available at the top of the form. It is recommended to save the application at each step (from step 6) to ensure you do not lose any information.

When saved, a unique access code and instructions will be sent to your email address

Saved applications that are not submitted will expire in 28 days from when they are first saved.

Note: All new and saved applications must be completed and submitted prior to the commencement of your nominated championships to be eligible.

Accessing a Saved Application

To access a saved application, you will need to:

  • Complete the first three steps of the form with the same details.
  • At step 4 select the saved application you wish to access using the radio button available.
  • Enter your unique access code in the space provided.
  • Click ‘Next’ to access the saved application.

Note: you will need to complete the first three steps of the application to re-access your saved application each time you close the browser.

Submitting an Application

When you submit an application, you will receive an email, which will include a copy of your submitted responses.

It is important that you check the information in the attachment and contact us   immediately should any information be incorrect.

Editing a Submitted Application

Once submitted, you will no longer have access to your online application.

If you require any changes to be made please contact us  .

Attachments and Supporting Documentation

Attachments cannot be uploaded into the application form or provided with your application to the assessment panel. Additional supporting information such as results or selection into further representative teams cannot be added to the application after the championship occurs.

Submitting Multiple Applications

If you are attending multiple eligible events, it is encouraged to submit an application for each eligible event, to increase the chances of receiving a grant.

Applicants are eligible to receive two grants per allocation year, where at least one grant is for an international competition.
