As part of our Sports Scholarship programme, there is a one-year programme available for undergraduates joining in 2017. This scholarship is support based - meaning you can access a range of services and support to ensure you perform at your peak.
To qualify you must be currently competing at a regional or county level and aspiring to perform in your sport at a national level (UK home nations or EU countries).
View our list of prioritised sports - if you're an athlete in one of these areas we are particularly keen to hear from you as we will prioritise these applications, although applications are welcome from any sporting discipline.
