The University of Strathclyde is delighted to announce its 66 Performance Sport Scholars for the 2022/23 academic year.

The Programme

Performance Sport Scholars are provided with a comprehensive support package equating to a cash equivalent of up to £4,750 per year funded through generous donations from the University of Strathclyde Alumni Community.

Scholarships are staggered by a Bronze, Silver and Gold package system, with all Scholars receiving a network of support from across the University.

This support includes flexible academic study options, strength and conditioning services at a world class facility, world-class sports science and medical support, athlete lifestyle support workshops, and financial assistance towards training and competition costs.

I've been given great opportunities that I otherwise wouldn’t have come across and found a career route I'm extremely passionate about, while being allowed to combine my training throughout it all.
