Coventry University is now accepting applications for its Sports Scholarship. The deadline for submission of applications for the Coventry University’s Sports Scholarship is 31st August, 2018.
A Coventry University Sports Scholarship could give you cash and support towards your sporting goals. This scheme offers you a support network enabling you to balance the demands of performance sport and academic study, helping you to achieve the highest level of success in both areas.
Both undergraduate and postgraduate students in any mode of study are eligible to apply for a Sports Scholarship. This includes those from the UK, the EU and from overseas, and those students that have moved on to years two and three who were not previously eligible but whose performance has improved sufficiently for them to apply.
In 2018/19 there will be 40-50 new Sports Scholarships available and they will be awarded competitively at either of two levels of support: £1,500 or £3,000 per year depending on your level of performance.
Level 1: this is for students at High County or National level, and consists of a total of £1500: £750 in cash and £750 towards support services.
Level 2: for students at High National or International level we offer a total of £3000: £1500 in cash and £1500 towards support services.
Each Scholarship consists of 50% direct financial support to fund training and competition/travelling expenses (other expenses may be considered on merit), and 50% in non-financial support in the form of a tailored programme of support services such as strength and conditioning, physiotherapy and sports nutrition.
- be able to demonstrate excellence in their chosen sporting activity at national or international level;
- be willing and able to represent the University at a high level in that sport;
- be participating in a sport that is recognised by Sport England (see the list on their website).
Although those participating in any sport on Sport England’s list will be considered, preference is given to those competing in our Team Phoenix sports: currently cricket, rugby league, men’s football, men’s rugby union, karate, men’s basketball, tennis and women’s hockey.
Students awarded the Scholarship must sign a contract giving the University rights to use their image in perpetuity and request their presence at certain media events if required.
To be considered for one of these scholarships you must be competing in a sport which is recognised by Sport England, but you may be an undergraduate or a postgraduate, from the UK, the EU or overseas, and studying in any year of your course.
