Sports Bursaries

Talented Athlete Bursaries

The bursaries range from £100 - £1,500 and are awarded through a competitive process of application forms to be assessed by a judging panel.

For the County, Regional and National Development Squad level athletes, these bursaries are made from their application forms.

For the International Level athletes, they are invited in to meet the panel which is made up of the Sports Development Team, Sarah Winckless MBE and Dame Katherine Grainger DBE.

Applications for 2019/20 bursaries will open on the 1st August 2019 and close at 5pm on the 22nd September 2019.

Any application forms received after the deadline, or not fully completed will not be considered by the panel.

Important: The International Level athletes will be asked to join a small informal panel, including two Olympic athletes as part of the judging process. If you are unable to be there in person, arrangements can be made for telephone conversations or skype calls.
