Aston Sports Scholarships

Each year Sport Aston award up to 6 bursary sums of up to £500 to students at Aston who have attained a level of excellence within their chosen sport. The scholarship aims to assist each student with continuation of their sporting career whilst at University and will fund appropriate activities such as sports equipment, physiotherapy or travel to training and/or competitions.

Any individual can apply for a sports scholarship who will be a full-time student at Aston and who has attained County level representation or equivalent (U18/U21 or senior status) in their chosen sport. The sport must be recognised by the University Sports Association (BUCS) and successful scholars will be expected to represent Aston University in the BUCS competition throughout the academic year they are awarded the prize. Scholarships will only be offered to individuals who have gained admission to the University on the basis of their academic merits.

The scholarships will be awarded by a committee elected by Sport Aston who will assess the merits of each individual applicant. Every applicant must complete an application form which must be returned to me by the closing date. Scholarships will be awarded on an annual basis and must be applied for in successive years.

Application forms will only be available for the months of September and October each academic year with an application deadline date of the end of October the same year. The application form can be found here.
