Sports Scholarship Scheme

The University of Kent is committed to delivering sporting excellence and is proud to offer scholarships to students with outstanding sporting ability at both Canterbury and Medway campuses. The amount to be offered will be determined by the University Sports Scholarship Committee and each case is considered on its own merit.

The Sports Scholarship Committee is led by Sports Development Manager Mel Clewlow who has over 250 international hockey caps and has played in two Olympic Games (Sydney and Beijing). She brings a wealth of experience to the scheme and is able to mentor our scholars and inspire them to greater things.

I am part of the scholarship scheme and have enjoyed every single training session throughout the last two years. Everything is well organised and structured, the gym is always clean and classes are always fun. The staff are very approachable and the physio clinic is very helpful.

Scholarship applications are now being accepted until 30 April.
Renewal applications will be available from 1 May.

Who is eligible?

Scholarships are available to elite sportsmen and women from any sport who compete (at least) at county level or equivalent. Scholars should be committed to representing the University of Kent and preferably play for teams based at the Canterbury Campus.

We consider undergraduate and postgraduate applicants, as well as current students. It is not necessary to wait for an offer of a place before submitting your application, however the offer of a scholarship does not carry with it the offer of a place.
