We are pleased to announce that this year's Performance Sport scholarship application process is now open.

We are offering 10 Vice-Chancellor scholarships, to the value of £1,500 per year, for athletes performing at Senior or International level.

Alongside this is the Performance Squad, which is an individualised, holistic programme, where athletes balance academic excellence and sporting aspirations, helping to make them a reality whilst studying at Bristol.

The value of becoming a member of the squad is £2,000 of Performance services, including an all access peak sports pass. Places for the Performance Squad are limited, so early application is encouraged. The criteria for selection is current junior or senior representation or to be part of an NGB talent pathway. If your application for a Vice-Chancellor scholarship is successful, you will be guaranteed a place on the Performance Squad, therefore making the total value of the scholarship £3,500.

There is only one application form for both of these opportunities (you will automatically be considered for both) and interviews will commence February 2017.
