Scholarships Scholarships


You can apply for a sports scholarship as a prospective or current student. If you are a prospective student, please don’t apply until you have at least selected Loughborough as your firm choice, preferably after you have confirmed your place (so after exam results if you have a conditional offer). If you consider yourself to meet the Tier 1 criteria, we can consider applications straight away, so please get in touch.

You don’t have to study a sport related course to be considered for a sports scholarship.

Our Sports section gives further details regarding the performance levels you’d need to be at to be considered for support.

Our awards are annual, and everyone has to reapply for support each year.

Many student athletes develop during their time here and become sports scholars during the later years of their undergraduate degree or as a postgraduate student, so you can apply in any year of study.

You will need to commit to representing the University to be considered. This representation would be at least in BUCS competition, and for some sports in national leagues as well. You will also need to adhere to our Scholarship Agreement.

The application form for 2017-18 is available to download here. The closing date is Friday 8th September 2017.
