Each year Sport Aston awards up to six 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 the continuation of their sporting career while at University and will fund appropriate activities such as sports equipment, physiotherapy or travel to training and/or competitions.

Any individual 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 can apply for a sports scholarship. The sport must be recognised by the British Universities & Colleges Sport (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 by the specified 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 August and September each academic year with an application deadline date in October of the same year.
