Since its inception in 1994, the University of Birmingham Sport Scholarship scheme has been pivotal in developing hundreds of talented student-athletes to realize and reach their performance potential. The University awards scholarships each year to National and International level athletes who are studying, or are about to study, at Birmingham. These awards provide financial and specialist support to talented young athletes. Scholarships are open to all students irrespective of nationality or course. We welcome applications from prospective students, even if they have not yet received an offer, or had a place confirmed at the University. Scholarships are reviewed annually and we encourage applications from any year of study.
UBSport currently offers around 40 University of Birmingham Sport scholarships per annum, in a gold, silver and bronze format, as well as supporting the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) and the Royal and Ancient Golf Bursary Scheme.
