The QIS Surfing Program provides athletes with an opportunity to progress further in their surfing careers. Scholarship holders meet on a regular basis for in-the-water sessions at local Coast beaches.
Athletes also participate in regular surfing specific fitness sessions that provide the athlete with the competitive edge needed to be successful in the world of surfing.
Surfers will be recognised and recommended from local surf clubs and surfing school programs. They will then apply for a scholarship and selection will be made accordingly.
Surfers will need to be willing to devote their time and effort to the meet program requirements and also need to be aged between 10 and 15 years.
A scholarship levy fee does apply to all athletes who are successful in becoming a QIS scholarship athlete. This scholarship fee covers the full cost of participation in the program including, but not limited to, training, education, materials and the QIS apparel kit.
Additional costs may apply for travel and/or accommodation at some stages throughout the program, though athletes and their parents will receive information regarding any additional costs well in advance of any such events or opportunities.
The scholarship fee must be paid in full prior to commencement of the scholarship program, unless a payment plan has been arranged and signed-off by QIS management.
