Amy Gillett Foundation Website

The Amy 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 motorists.


The Amy Gillett Scholarship is supported by:  Cycling Australia | Giant Bicycles | Oakley
