The Highland Athlete Travel Award Scheme is designed to support performance or development athletes from Highland with their travel and accommodation costs for an agreed training and competition schedule outside of the Highland Region.
This pilot scheme is funded by sportscotland and High Life Highland and is administered locally by High Life Highland. The scheme has a total budget of £12,000 for this pilot programme. Eight eligible applicants can receive up to 100% funding of up to a maximum of £1500 in a single financial year i.e. 1st April - 31st March. The scheme can support individuals that are taking part in sports recognised by sportscotland (for more info visit: www.sportscotland.org.uk/sport-a-z ). We hope it will make a real difference to the quality of sports performance for people living in Highland.
The overarching aim of this scheme is to improve opportunities for Highland athletes to participate, progress and achieve in sport by:
Helping to prepare Scotland's best athletes from Highland to perform on the national and international stage;
Providing financial support for Highland athletes to access high performance expertise in sport;
Helping Highland athletes to consistently achieve selection to national age grade, national GB programmes and ultimately winning on the world stage.
