Scholarships & funding opportunities

Humanities and Social Sciences International Postgraduate Taught Performance Sport Scholarship

The HaSS International Taught Postgraduate Performance Sport Scholarship aims to enable talented student-athletes who are regularly competing at International level to follow a dual career. Consequently, the programme provides academic flexibility (where feasible), World-Class sports science and medical support, and financial assistance towards training and competition costs.

The Performance Sport Scholarship Programme is offered on a one-year renewable basis based on the 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 £6,750.

  • Number of scholarships up to four
  • Value £3,000 (+ up to £3,750* in-kind support)
  • Opens 19 October 2020
  • Deadline 31 August 2021
  • Help with Tuition fees, Living costs, Equipment and study costs


All applicants must be competing in a Sport Scotland-recognised sport, and priority will be given to students competing in a BUCS-sport who can demonstrate the potential to contribute toward the University's objective of being ranked in the top 20 in the UK. In addition, all applicants should be competing at least at Junior, if not senior, International level.

Furthermore, we actively encourage students competing at an elite level within disability sport and our new £31m Sports Facility is fully-accessible.
