Queen's Sports Bursary launched
06 March 2012
Twenty-six of Queen's University young sporting stars representing 12 different sports have been awarded sports bursaries from the University.
The Bursary programme, which is sponsored by the Ulster Bank, aims to provide cutting edge support services for high achieving sportsmen and women students. It complements ongoing support for high performers through the already established GAA, Rugby, Rowing and Soccer Academies. More than 100 Queen's students already benefit from these programmes.
The Bursary Awards are available to current students who have achieved a high standard in their particular sport. The scheme offers recipients a comprehensive package, including sports science support, specialist sports medical care, free use of facilities, free gear and financial assistance for the costs of training at such a high level. The awards are designed to give top sporting individuals the best opportunity to develop their talent during their time at the University.
