The High Performance Sports Scholarship – Bath Spa University

Receive up to £1,000 to support your sporting performance at national and international level.

Bath Spa University's High Performance Sports Scholarship supports students who are studying at Bath Spa whilst competing on a national and international stage.

The University actively encourages extra-curricular activities and is proud to support excellence in sport.

"The High-Performance Sports Scholarship has provided a considerable amount of support in my advancement as a competitive long-distance trail runner. In a year with many uncertainties and changes in my annual running race and training plan, the scholarship has provided stability that has enabled me to sustain the necessary amount of training (in both the UK and Mexico) that is necessary to perform at a high standard in this sport, and resulted in improvements and opportunities in my athletic performance."

William Bray, BSc (Hons) Environmental Science
