Each year 900 students compete at the School Sport Australia National Championships as members of Team Vic. Each of these students has excelled at their sport, resulting in them being chosen to represent Victoria in a school sport state team. The SESF removes the financial barriers for students and enables them to follow their sporting dreams.

While all young people selected for Team Vic have the talent and
commitment to succeed, not all have the funds or support to take up the opportunity.

To eliminate this barrier to participation, it is the SESF’s mission to award scholarships to help support Victorian students from low
socio-economic, indigenous or rural and regional backgrounds.

Participating in sport provides young people with social, cultural and educational opportunities, encouraging healthy lifestyles, the
development of life skills and lifelong friendships. For those from
disadvantaged backgrounds, these benefits can be far reaching.
