Winning Students scholarships are awarded annually and can value up to £6,000 per annum, providing tailored support and academic flexibility.
Scholarships are available to full-time and part-time students at college or university and to able-bodied and disability athletes.
Scholarship funding can be spent on a number of support services from student accommodation to competition fees and sports equipment.
We work closely with Scottish Governing Bodies of Sport and with the sportscotland institute of sport to ensure this funding complements existing support.
In our core sports, athletes are nominated for support by their governing body, whilst Individual Scholarships offer athletes in other sports the chance to receive support.
Once an athlete is nominated, their selection is verified by the relevant institution and Winning Students team. Scholarship values are agreed by programme partners in line with performance development plans.
