NAB Scholarships

Beginning in 1987 as a URAC sponsorship cash grant, the National Australia Bank Sports Scholarship became a sporting legacy in 1992. Selected by a sub-committee, recipients receive up to $3000 for their outstanding ability in a particular sport. The scholarship is designed to provide financial support to assist in the costs associated with competing at elite levels.
