The specific aims of the sports scholarships are: Recruit talented sportsmen and women to study at the Royal Agricultural University. Assist those students to achieve their full sporting potential alongside their studies. Enable the sports scholars to help raise the profile of the University through their sporting and academic endeavours. Enhance the achievements of University sports teams as far as is reasonable through participation, representation or other forms of encouragement. Scholarships are available (on adjudication) to sportsmen and women who compete (at least) at county level or equivalent (this standard will vary from sport to sport). Scholars should be committed to representing the University and working with the University to achieve the aims of the sports scholarship scheme. Each scholarship will be available for the duration of the student's studies whilst at the University, subject to a satisfactory annual review. Influencing factors for renewal of the scholarship each year will include levels of participation within the University sports teams, the external profiling achieved through such participation, and the scholars own personal achievements in both sporting and academic arenas. The University will, as far as is reasonable, help the successful Scholars to actively promote the University in the context of their scholarship.
