AIS Alumni

Up until 2013, the AIS offered scholarships to athletes across 36 programs in 26 different sports.

The establishment of the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) was announced by Hon. Robert Ellicott, the Minister for Home Affairs and the Environment on 25 January 1980.

The AIS was officially opened by the Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Malcolm Fraser on 26 January 1981 (Australia Day).

The AIS Alumni Network is currently being assembled. Unless otherwise indicated, all AIS sports will gradually be included to this network. AIS Alumni are encouraged to submit comments and/or contributions, to this network.
