In order to assist with the development and promotion of  sporting excellence in students and alumni of Robert Gordon University, the RGU: SPORT  calls on qualified candidates to apply for the RGU: SPORT scholarships for the 2013 session.
The RGU: SPORT offers a number of sports scholarships, to promising sports men and women to support them in developing their talents and succeeding in their chosen sporting field whilst undertaking academic study and are offered on an annual basis to athletes who are at, or close to, national standard in their given sport.
Scholarships are designed to help students in every aspect of their pursuit of sporting excellence. The scholarship is not primarily concerned with offering financial assistance to recipients, but will be tailored to meet individual needs on a case by case basis.
Worth of Awards

  • Financial assistance is awarded to support travel, training, equipment and competition expenses accrued during the academic year.
  • All Scholars will receive a membership to RGU:SPORT and have access to the facilities for the duration of the scholarship. A full range of services are also available to the Scholar which include:
  • Fitness Testing and Anthropometry
