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.
Our scholarship programme runs on three levels, Podium Scholars, Elite Scholars and Development scholars.
Our schemes are primarily aimed at the English Institute of Sport (EIS) priority sports and Olympic sports listed below.
We will give priority to Athletic Union Sports, however other sports may be considered on a case-by-case basis. The panel will need to be reassured that the Governing Body of the sport is well-established and that the standard of competition is comparable across sports.
