Summary

The University of Strathclyde Performance Sport Scholarship Programme 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 Award 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.
