Gillett Foundation today called for applications for the inaugural Amy
Gillett Scholarship in memory of champion cyclist Amy Gillett, who was
killed in a tragic road accident while training in Germany in July 2005.
The Foundation is proud to join with Cycling Australia to offer this
important opportunity to assist the sporting and educational aspirations of
Australia's talented women cyclists.
The scholarship is a joint partnership between the Foundation and the
Cycling Australia/AIS High Performance Program and will provide national and
international competition and training opportunities for the next generation
of Amy Gilletts.
A strong business and commercial base has also been established to ensure
the name of Amy Gillett will endure through work towards achieving the aims
of the Foundation.
Husband Simon has been instrumental in setting up the Foundation and
initiating the scholarship.
"I am really pleased to be able to announce that we have been able to
provide such a lasting legacy in Amy's name" he said.
"The scholarship also has a strong emphasis on providing further
educational opportunities, something Amy successfully combined with her
elite sporting career."
The scholarship is one of the three key aims of the Foundation. In addition
to the scholarship, it will also assist the five women cyclists injured in
the accident and will promote road safety awareness among cyclists and
