ANU Sport-Star: Meet Cara


"Sport on campus is important to me because it brings balance. I can’t purely be an academic or an elite athlete – there’s no sustainability in that."

Cara Grzeskowiak is a Bachelor of Science and Economics student at the ANU, but she is also an elite rower! Cara has been the recipient of ANU Sport’s Elite Athlete Travel Grants to travel around the world to represent ANU and Australia – just to name a few, she’s been to the World University Championships in China and the Under 23s World Championships in The Netherlands!

ANU Sport is able to offer travel grants to burgeoning and deserving student athletes thanks to the generous help of SSAF funding: that’s the fee you pay at the beginning of each teaching period alongside your tuition fees which helps the university to provide vital services which support you during your studies!

‘The Elite Athlete Travel Grants are the difference between going overseas and constantly worrying about everything or enjoying the opportunity to represent ANU and Australia.’
