  2. Scholarship holders will normally be expected to represent the University in the sport for which the Scholarship was awarded (via the appropriate Students’ Union Sports Club). In some circumstances this requirement may not be appropriate or possible and can be waived by agreement of the Chair of the Awarding Panel.

The first payment will be made in early December, and the second in early March.  Payments will not be made during years abroad, years in employment, sandwich years, repeat years, etc.  Holders of the Scholarship will continue to receive the benefits as long as they are full-time students and satisfy these terms and conditions.
