Sports Scholarships

>> Tuesday, April 07, 2009

(Exeter and Cornwall campuses)
Exeter is proud of its high quality reputation that matches its whole hearted commitment to delivering sporting excellence. Sports Scholars play a key role in maintaining these high standards of achievement; they compete successfully in several of the sports teams that form part of the University High Performance Programme. On average, over 30 Scholarships are awarded each year.

Sports Scholarships are available to undergraduate and postgraduate applicants as well as current students. Candidates must be of outstanding sporting ability who show evidence of achievement or potential at national level. They are only offered to students who have gained an offer of a place or normal admission to a course based on their academic qualifications. However, it is not necessary to wait for an offer of a place before submitting your application form. No special reduction in entry criteria is offered as part of the scholarship, nor does the offer of a scholarship carry with it an offer of a place. There is no support offered through the Sports Scholarship Scheme to help finance course, tuition or international fees.

Scholarships are awarded on a yearly basis and can be renewable for up to a further two years, subject to satisfactory sporting performance, academic progress and general conduct. The scholar will be assessed at the end of each year and they will have to apply for re-nomination for an award.

The University will make every effort to accommodate your training and performance needs however, no dispensation is offered from the normal course requirements in terms of assessment, progression or final degree classification.

There are a number of awards available to applicants:

Sports Scholarships will be tailored to the needs of the individual but will include a cash sum for sporting expenses/discounted accommodation costs from £500 up to a maximum of £1,000 and for exceptional athletes, this can rise to £2,000. A full package of support services equating to a cash equivalent of £500 is also provided.

In the main, the Sports Scholarship Scheme is funded centrally by the University High Performance Programme. However, several partners and local and national sponsors also show great generosity by financing several individual scholarships and bursaries.

There are also sports-specific bursaries available:

In Golf, Exeter is one of only 6 institutions in the UK to be awarded an educational development grant from the Royal & Ancient to help Exeter administer a performance programme for elite student golfers. Men wishing to apply should have a handicap of scratch or better and women 4 or better.

In Men’s Rugby, opportunities exist for undergraduates and postgraduates to apply to the University's Rugby Bursary Programme run in partnership with Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club and kindly supported by the South West Communications Group.

You will be allocated a performance mentor with whom ‘Professional and Athlete Life Skills’ can be discussed and an annual programme of training and competition agreed. Each scholar is also assigned an academic tutor to help with their studies and academic progress.

How do you apply?
The submission of the Application Form needs to be undertaken by the 31st January each year. Late applications may be considered after consultation with the Sports Performance Manager, in order to avoid disappointing any potential sports stars. Late applicants are advised to contact the Sports Performance Manager as soon as possible. The Scholarship Panel will assess all the application forms and invite those successful athletes to formally apply to the second stage of the scheme’s application process.

Second stage applications are generally required by the end of March of any given year prior to arrival in the autumn of that same year. The Scholarship Panel will then meet in May to discuss and decide upon successful scholarship awards. You will be notified by the end of May as to whether your application has been successful. If successful, you will be assigned a level of award and notified on what you will need to do next.
