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 £4,750 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

To be considered for the next round of scholarship awards, applications are open to all current and prospective students and must be submitted by 09.00 GMT on Tuesday 31st August 2021:
