About the Butterfly Scholarship

Supporting Regional athletes to realise their potential on a national stage.

Visioned by Simon Jocelyne (the butterfly man), we are a volunteer-run program raising money to contribute to travel, accommodation, equipment, and race entry fees for junior regional athletes.

Other than nominal operational and event costs, all  funds raised by holding events and through our generous individual and corporate sponsors is directed to the support of our scholarship participants.

Inspired by the selfless acts of bravery carried out by the Australian nurse Kirsty Boden, our scholarship pays homage to the bravery of all nurses through the cross in our logo. Kirsty grew up in regional South Australia and still holds swimming records for butterfly at her school and was a national qualifier.
