Winning Students scholarships are individually tailored to each athlete's needs, complimenting existing support.
Core sport nominations are confirmed provided the athletes meet the full selection criteria while individual scholarships are considered by a select group of the programme's advisory board.
Scholarships can be spent flexibly on a number of support services from accommodation to match fees and the individual needs are agreed by the athlete in consultation with their sport and with their college or university Winning Students co-ordinator.
Across the core scholarship sports, athletes are nominated by their governing body. There are also individual scholarships available in non-core sports, with athletes nominated by themselves, their sport or by their college or university.
Nominations are submitted to the University of Stirling, Scotland's University for Sporting Excellence, which manages the scholarship programme.
