Triathlon scholarships

Our triathlon scholarships provide a superb package of training, competition and funding support to fit in alongside academic studies.

At Stirling we bring together high performance coaches, excellent facilities, innovative sport science, strength and conditioning and performance mentoring.

We’re proud to host the National Performance Centre for Triathlon Scotland, a British Triathlon Satellite Centre, providing a training home for elite and high performance competitors.
