This article will inform you about the sports scholarships that are available.

If you are competing at a regional or international level in your sport, you could be eligible for support and funding through our Sports Scholarship schemes.

Over the years, we have supported many athletes who have gone on to compete at the highest level, including at both paralympic and Olympic events.

Our aim is to help you balance a demanding training and competition schedule with the pressures of achieving a high quality degree.
