University of Edinburgh Elite Athlete Scholarship

The University of Edinburgh Elite Athlete Scholarship fund is awarded to the University's most talented student athletes.

The scholarship exists to support student athletes and enhance their dual career (academic and sporting) ambitions and position the University as the UK's most foremost higher education institution for performance sport. The fund will provide current matriculated students with monetary support to ease training, competition, equipment and living costs whilst also helping to recruit top student athletes to the University.

Awards are influenced by the athlete's competitive standard in their sport and usually require the individual to be competing at Junior International standard as a minimum.

The value of this scholarship is between £2000-£4000 per student each year.
