To be considered for a Winning Students sports scholarship, students and prospective students should meet general, education and sport-specific criteria.
A Gemma Gibbons Grand Prix Gold was the pick of the results this weekend, but there were plenty of good performances by Winning Students athletes in various other sports.
The Universiade or World University Games kicked off in Gwangju, South Korea on Thursday and we’ll be keeping you up to date with the 12 Winning Students athletes competing in their five sports. Here’s the story so far:
There were some impressive results across a number of sports last weekend, including a big victory for the in-form Golfer Cormac Sharvin and Swimming and Hockey success in Glasgow.
Pupils from Hyndland Secondary School in Glasgow were treated to a master class in both badminton and table tennis by three Scottish internationals who are preparing to travel to Gwangju, South Korea next week to represent Team GB at the World University Games.
“Many of Scotland’s best swimmers are also students and the Winning Students scholarships provide welcome support to enable them to do both effectively. Coupled with support from the sportscotland institute of sport, the scholarships make a significant impact on swimmers’ development and future performance.”
