Who's eligible?

The Elite Athlete Scheme is open to any student enrolled at the University of Sunderland, including the partner colleges. All sports are eligible – unlike some other universities, we don’t restrict which sports are eligible for our sports scholarships.

How to apply

You can only apply for this scholarship once you are enrolled onto a University of Sunderland course.

This scholarship is discretionary, and so not everyone who is eligible will receive it.

Applications will be accepted in Summer 2017.
