Athlete Scholarship

The University of Wolverhampton Sport Scholarship Programme offers performance packages for elite athletes, aspiring coaches, match officials and leaders.

The University of Wolverhampton awards a number of scholarships to individual student-athletes who demonstrate aspirations to compete to the highest level within their sport.
