Strathclyde Sport Performance Sports Scholarship Programme

The Performance Sport Scholarship Programme is offered on a one-year renewable basis based on the High Performance Sport Panel’s review of applications each year.

Performance Sport Scholars are provided with a comprehensive support package equating to a cash equivalent of up to £5,000 per year funded through generous donations from the University of Strathclyde Alumni Community.

Whilst priority is given to athletes competing for one of our FOCUSports Clubs, we additionally encourage applications from athletes competing at Senior International level in non-FOCUSports.

How to apply

The closing date for all current and prospective students holding University offers to apply for a Performance Sport Scholarship for 2022 is 09.00 GMT on 20 June 2022.
