Strathclyde Uni Performance Sport Scholars

The University of Strathclyde has announced 44 Performance Sport Scholars for the 2019/20 academic year – with nine from athletics.

The Performance Sport Programme has been running for 28 years and has seen students represent the University at the Olympic Games and win Commonwealth Games and World Championship medals.

The programme is offered on a one-year renewable basis, based on the Performance Sport Panel’s review of applications each year, with 44 Scholars the most to be accepted onto the programme to date.

Set to benefit this year are:

Miraji Ahmed, Fraser Angus, Greg Kelly, Jack McKenna, Alessandro Schenini

Rachel Alexander, Emily Craig, Kerry MacAngus, Holly McArthur

Scholars are selected based on their ability to compete in their sports at an international level and will all represent the University in BUCS Championships over the course of the year.

Performance Sport Scholars are provided with a comprehensive support package with financial support towards training and competition costs funded through generous donations from the University of Strathclyde Alumni Community.

Scholarships are staggered by a Bronze, Silver and Gold package system, with all Scholars receiving a network of support from across the University.
