Scholarship honours Garth
GARTH Prowd OAM was a pioneer of sports tourism and an innovator and leader in the development of Australia’s largest and best known multisport, triathlon, running and cycling events.
In his honour, the Garth Prowd OAM Triathlon Scholarship has been created in partnership with Noosa Triathlon and the Prowd family, to remember the man affectionately known as the ‘Godfather’ of Australian triathlon.
The scholarship aims to recognise and continue creating opportunities and pathways for young triathletes and is open for application to Australian triathletes aged between 15-23.
Athletes must race the 2017 Noosa Triathlon and apply for the scholarship online before midnight (AEST) October 31, 2017.
A panel of selectors will review and agree on one male and one female worthy candidate. The scholarship winners will be awarded at the Noosa Triathlon presentations, Noosa Main Beach, Sunday, November 5, at 4pm.
