Thank you for your interest in the Imperial Sports Scholarship Programme. Applications are currently closed and will reopen at the start of the next academic year.

Imperial Athletes offers support to students who are competing at regional, national and international levels, enabling them to perform and develop in their chosen sports whilst studying at Imperial. 
The support available is athlete-specific and is tailored to the individual. It is aimed at providing a holistic, multi-disciplinary service to students who have the talent and commitment to fulfil their potential within their chosen sport. In return, recipients are (where applicable) asked to represent Imperial at sporting fixtures and assist the College in promoting the profile of their sport through social media and in person events.

We offer three tiers of scholarship: Gold, Silver & Bronze. Below is an outline of the provision each tier receives. Imperial Athletes Sport Scholarships are awarded on case-by-case basis and the level of competition alone does not guarantee selection for the Sports Scholarship. Selection for the Scholarship is done at the discretion of the performance staff.
