If you have applied through UCAS to study at Edge Hill University and firmly accepted an offer of a place for 2018 entry, you could develop your sporting performance by applying for a Sports Scholarship worth up to £1,000 per academic year.
Sports Scholarships have nothing to do with your financial situation, degree subject or academic achievement. If you are talented at sport and participate, coach or officiate at a competitive level, then we want to hear from you.
There are three distinctive levels of Sports Scholarship awards with different benefits and qualification criteria.
Please note, if you are awarded a Sports Scholarship, you must make satisfactory progress in both your sporting and academic pursuits to have the scholarship renewed annually prior to your graduation, irrespective of whether you are allocated a Gold, Silver or Bronze award.
To be eligible to apply for a Sports Scholarship, you must have applied to study a full-time undergraduate degree, full-time integrated Masters degree, full-time foundation degree or full-time PGCE at Edge Hill University and firmly accepted an offer of a place to study with us.
Your application will be judged against a set of benchmarks to determine whether your application has been successful and, if so, to establish Gold, Silver or Bronze classification.
You will need to demonstrate that you meet one of the benchmarks below for a particular level of Sports Scholarship. These competitive level benchmarks serve as preliminary guidelines only and do not guarantee the receipt of a Sports Scholarship or a specific level of award.
If you are awarded a Sports Scholarship but subsequently defer your offer of a place to study with us, you will no longer be eligible to receive the Sports Scholarship, though you are welcome to re-apply for a Sports Scholarship in the following application cycle before you join your course. Please bear in mind, however, that there is a competitive application process so a successful outcome to your second application (or the same level of award) cannot be guaranteed.
Direct entrants to Years 2 or 3 of an undergraduate degree or integrated Masters degree, as well as permanent employees of Edge Hill University, are not eligible for a Sports Scholarship.
A successful application for a Sports Scholarship will make you ineligible to receive an Excellence Scholarship. You are welcome to apply for the two awards, however, and if both applications are successful, you will be able to choose which scholarship you would prefer to receive.
How to Apply
To be considered for a Sports Scholarship, you need to complete our Sports Scholarship Application Form.
The closing date for applications is Friday 25th May 2018.
A selection panel will judge all applications received. The level of Sports Scholarship (Gold, Silver or Bronze) awarded to successful applicants will be determined by the selection panel.
If you are awarded a Sports Scholarship, you will be invited to the Scholarship Presentation Evening in late 2018 to celebrate your success. You will also be expected to play a significant role in raising the standard of performance of the student sports teams and must be fully committed to training and competing for the University in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) events wherever possible.
