Winning Students is Scotland's national sports scholarship programme supporting students competing in high performance sport.
In member colleges and universities across Scotland, some of the most talented young athletes - including Olympians, Commonwealth competitors and senior internationalists - are combining their studies and their sport.
Recognising this dedication and determination, Winning Students supports selected athletes with scholarships of up to £5,500 each year, which can be invested in a range of services.
Across core sports and through Individual Scholarships, the scholarships now support more than 150 student athletes.
Winning Students has made a massive difference enabling me to continue my studies and my sport, assisting me in gaining selection for the Commonwealth Games.
