To be considered for a Winning Students sports scholarship, students and prospective students should meet general, education and sport-specific criteria.
Some more of our scholars were confirmed as part of Team GB's squad for Rio 2016 this week.
The British Swimming Championships in Glasgow last week offered the country’s best swimmers the opportunity for national glory and, with the Championships doubling as Olympic selection trials, the chance to compete at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
The country's best swimmers descended on Glasgow last week to compete in the British Championships in an attempt to secure their place in the GB team for the Rio 2016 Olympics.
“It’s a very sensible option to study alongside sport because your sporting career isn’t going to last your lifetime. If you are lucky you can make a living but once you stop competing it’s very important to have something to fall back on. There’s a possibility of injury as well so you never know how your career is going to pan out really. Study works to balance your sport as well because it’s a really useful distraction.”
