About the Scholarship
The Golden Homes Swim Scholarship is among the most prestigious scholarship available in New Zealand. Unfortunately due to the current housing climate only two scholarships will awarded for the 2019/2020 season which will be reviewed again for the 2020/2021 season. This will enable high performing swimmers the opportunity to train at a world class facility with other athletes also competing at an elite level. These athletes will have full access and mentoring by some of the best swimming coaches and personal trainers currently in New Zealand.
The scholarship is open to male and female elite swimmers from any club provided they are eligible to compete for New Zealand. Recipients must be leaders in the sport, exhibiting outstanding sportsmanship, exemplary work and training standards, be a team player and strive for excellence.
