Phoebe Parker - netball scholar and Adult Nursing student"Being on the scholarship programme allows me to excel in both my sport and academics, knowing I am supported to succeed in both.

Harry Jones - swimming scholar and Environmental Sciences student"The excellence scholarship at UEA has allowed me to give my all to my sport alongside my studies. It has provided me with opportunities to meet other aspiring athletes through workshops, as well as giving me access to first class facilities. The support given by the staff has been amazing and they always go above and beyond to make sure we are happy athletes!"
Chloe Dust - dance scholar and Norwich Business School student"Dance as a sport can quite often be overlooked, having this scholarship makes me believe the sport is valued much more now than ever before.

Finn O’Brien – kayak scholar and Literature, Creative Writing and Drama student"Being on the UEA sports scholarship scheme makes me feel incredibly well supported and I'm so grateful to be part of an incredibly committed and dedicated community. I know that if I have any issues, both sport related and otherwise, I can reach out to the scholarship team to receive advice and coaching about how to move forward and progress. The scheme also pushes me to work harder and become a better athlete so that I can do both myself and my university proud."
