University of Wolverhampton Sports Scholarship Scheme

WLV Sport Scholarship Scheme is intrinsically linked to our Focus Sports (football, basketball, combat sports and netball); athletes outside of these sports are still considered and more favourably if their sport is recognised within the BUCS competitive framework.

WLV Sport Scholars can receive support up to a value of £4,500 over three years*

Applications are accepted from Undergraduate and Postgraduate students

Scholars are expected to:

  • represent WLV Sport in BUCS and student sports competitions
  • attend mentor meetings; Sports Award Dinner; Sport Fairs and Open Days
  • involve themselves in coaching, and / or volunteering activities as required
  • maintain their academic grades

WLV Sport Scholarship Complimentary Package (which is in addition to any financial reward) includes:

  1. Physiotherapy
  2. Strength & Conditioning
  3. Rhino Teamear Tracksuit
  4. Funding towards elite coaching, competitions, training costs and equipment
  5. Annual WLV Gym and Swim Membership
  6. Mentoring support

Mentoring Support: Each scholar will be assigned a mentor with relevant experience/interest in the sport where possible. Mentors will meet with their scholars on a monthly basis. Mentors are volunteers and will receive mentoring training.

The Scholarship Scheme is reviewed annually although the Panel reserves the right to make changes and / or amendments at any time. The Panel also reserves the right to withdraw a Scholarship offer at any time.

* All current scholars are required to re-apply each academic year.
