Sport Scholarships

We understand the pressure of combining university studying with elite level sport.

In addition to the considerable benefits of first-class coaching, access to world-class facilities, strength and conditioning and sports medicine support, our Sports Scholarships offer financial support as well as access to a sports mentor, a life skills programme and the opportunity for flexible study. Our scholarship-holders receive between £500 and £3,500 per year. We would look to offer up to £5,000 for exceptional candidates.

To be eligible to apply for a Sports Scholarship, you need to have a confirmed place to study at Loughborough, and usually be competing at least at junior international level.
