General overview of the Bournemouth University Sport Scholarship
The Bournemouth University Sport Scholarship is available to high-level sporting athletes coming to study at either undergraduate or postgraduate level at the university.
It provides funds to winners, helping them develop sporting abilities and thereby taking them to the next level, also to be a high performing sportsperson and have the desire to continue to develop in the sporting arena, as well as academically.
So, you can apply for up to £5,000 of funding and put this money towards coaching, equipment, competition entry fees, travel expenses or/or support services.
Applicant must demonstrate excellence in a chosen sport, and be part of a Regional/state, National and/or International squad and compete at that level.
Our Goals and targets
Athletes receiving this scholarship will ideally represent Bournemouth University in the BUCS programme (League and Individual), as well as themselves and/or their club at regional, national or international level.
Individual athletes will also need to be competitive with top performers within the BUCS programme.
If you are awarded a scholarship, you will need to meet with the Sports Performance Manager to assess how the funds will help you throughout the year.
Second, commit to attending 75% of training sessions, represent Bournemouth University in sporting competitions where possible to raise the profile of Sport BU’s activities and take part in marketing materials.
As part of your application for a Bournemouth University Sport Scholarship, you will have to attend our trial process and our Couches will assess you.
Therefore, you must ensure your application is supported by a reference from a High-Performance Coach or National Governing Body coach if you are applying for a sport that sits outside our performance BUCS programme, and also ensure that two references are sent alongside your application.
Because we review Scholarships on a regular basis and the university reserves the right to withdraw, amend or introduce new scholarships at any time.
And we also offer Scholarships subject to funding and availability, awarding it in your first year, unless otherwise stated.
