New South Wales Institute of Sport

The NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) Rowing Program, in partnership with Rowing Australia (RA) and Rowing NSW (RNSW) supports targeted athletes to become the world’s best. It is a leading member of the National Institute Network (NIN) of Australia.

NSWIS works in collaboration with three Performance Pathway clubs in metropolitan Sydney to deliver the high performance objectives of the NSW Performance Pathway Program. This includes the provision of facilities and services to meet the daily training environment needs of athletes in pursuit of national representation and international success.

NSWIS provides scholarships to athletes identified through Rowing Australia’s national athlete categorisation framework, in line with Sport Australia’s National Sport Plan.

NSWIS Rowing scholarships run from 1 October to 30 September each year, with a review immediately after the selection of the Australian Rowing Team (March/April).
