Am I eligible for the EAPP?


If you compete at a state, national or international level in a Sport Australia or UniSport Australia endorsed sport you might be eligible to join the Elite Athlete and Performer Program. As an elite athlete you may have been identified by one of the following organisations:

  • the Australian Institute of Sport
  • a State institute or academy of sport
  • a relevant national or state sporting association, of which you are a member eg Cricket Australia, Diving Queensland, Victorian Football League (VFL).

You’re considered an elite performer if you are a member of, and have had significant success in, a major artistic performing arts or production company at a state, national or international level.
Applications for 2021 open from Monday 10 August 2020.  To be considered for bonus adjustment factors please completed your application (including TAC ID) by 30 November 2020. If you are applying to study at ACU and think you are eligible for EAPP adjustment factors, firstly you need to apply for your ACU course via your local tertiary admissions centre (TAC). Next, gather your EAPP application support documentation and then complete the online application form.

You will need to complete the online application form and provide evidence of your current elite sporting or performing status by supplying the following support documentation:

  • a sporting/performing resume summarising your achievements and experiences over 12 – 18 months. We understand that your sporting or performance commitments may have been impacted in 2020. This will not affect your eligibility for the EAPP. Simply tell us about the commitments you were selected to participate in during 2020 as well as telling us about your achievements in 2019.
  • a supporting reference letter from your relevant sporting or performing institution or association that verifies your level of elite involvement over the past 12 months and your ongoing commitments ie NSW/Australian Athletics
  • current training and expected competition schedule for the upcoming year (if possible)
  • high-resolution competition or performance photo (action shot preferred).


Once you have your documents ready, apply here.

As a current student, you can apply or re-apply for the EAPP at any time. This includes both undergraduate and postgraduate students. EAPP students are required to re-apply at the end of Semester 2 each year.  2020 members will be exempt from reapplying in 2021 due to the impact of COVID19.

The EAPP understands that your sport and performing commitments have been impacted this year. We are committed to supporting you through your return to training and events now and into future. As a result of COVID19 impacts on sport and the performing arts all 2020 EAPP students will not be required to reapply for membership in 2021.

Current student who are not yet members can apply here
