In 2021/22 the university will award at least 20 new Sports Scholarships to athletes, coaches and officials. The number of awards and amount given to each student is dependent on how many applications are received and the level of performance of the applicants and engagement with the programme.

All Scholars will be assessed on a case by case basis.
First year students will initially be assessed on their sporting participation in their school, college or university in the year prior to commencing their studies at the University of Gloucestershire. Returning students will also be assessed on their sporting and academic participation in their previous year. After assessment, continued eligibility, for all students, will be based on participation and performance in both their studies and chosen sport throughout the 2021/22 academic year.
Students offered a Sports Scholarship will:
• Be enrolled at the University of Gloucestershire on an eligible course
Scholarships are awarded on a yearly basis and reassessed annually. Regular reviews must be passed to maintain a scholarship throughout the academic year. If a student does not engage fully with the Sports Scholarship Programme, we reserve the right to withdraw funding and/or remove them from the programme. The Personal Tutor must provide confirmation the student is attending and committed to the programme of study for the funding payments to be made at the four points during the year.
Students studying on a part time basis who are awarded this scholarship will be paid pro-rata dependent on the amount of credits undertaken.
50% of the Sports Excellence Fund is reserved for eligible students who also meet the below widening participation criteria.
• Undergraduate Home student, plus at least one of the following criteria:
If an award is terminated for any reason, a student must repay the University any monies overpaid, based on a pro-rata calculation from the date of the termination of the scholarship.
The University will terminate the award for any student who ceases to be an enrolled student of the University of Gloucestershire, for whatever reason.
In the event that students have applied and are eligible for both the Sports Scholarship and the Academic Merit Scholarship only the scholarship of the highest monetary value shall be awarded.
