|Sports Scholarships for Current Students|
|Scholarship Name||Sports Scholarships for Current Students|
|Scholarship amount||up to £1,000 per academic year|
If you are in Years 1 or 2 of a full-time undergraduate programme, or Year 1 only of a full-time foundation degree or DipHE, you could develop your sporting performance in academic year 2019/20 by applying for a Sports Scholarship worth up to £1,000 per academic year.
Sports Scholarships have nothing to do with your financial situation, degree subject or academic achievement. If you are talented at sport and participate, coach or officiate at a competitive level, then we want to hear from you.
There are three distinctive levels of Sports Scholarship awards with different benefits and qualification criteria.
Please note, if you are awarded a Sports Scholarship, you must make satisfactory progress in both your sporting and academic pursuits to have the scholarship renewed annually prior to your graduation, irrespective of whether you are allocated a Gold, Silver or Bronze award. This must be evidenced by completing an annual review to demonstrate your ongoing performance levels.
To be eligible to apply for a Sports Scholarship, you must be enrolled on one of the following Edge Hill University awards:
Your application will be judged to determine whether your application has been successful and, if so, to establish Gold, Silver or Bronze classification.
You will need to demonstrate that you meet one or more of the criteria below for a particular level of Sports Scholarship. The criteria serves as a preliminary guideline only and does not guarantee the receipt of a Sports Scholarship or a specific level of award.
Conversion degree (top-up) students, Erasmus students, repeat year students and permanent employees of Edge Hill University are not eligible to apply for a Sports Scholarship.
A successful application for a Sports Scholarship will make you ineligible to receive an Excellence Scholarship. You are welcome to apply for the two awards, however, and if both applications are successful, you will be able to choose which scholarship you would prefer to receive.
If you were previously awarded an Excellence Scholarship or Sports Scholarship as a prospective student, you will not be eligible to receive a Sports Scholarship as a current student.
How to Apply
To be considered for a Sports Scholarship, you need to complete our Sports Scholarship application form.
The Sports Scholarship application form will be available to download from this page when applications open in February 2020.
A selection panel will judge all applications received. The level of Sports Scholarship (Gold, Silver or Bronze) awarded to successful applicants will be determined by the selection panel.
If you are awarded a Sports Scholarship, you will be expected to play a significant role in raising the standard of performance of the student sports teams and must be fully committed to training and competing for the University in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) events wherever possible.
