With the support of University of Leicester Alumni, through generous donations each year to the Student Opportunities Fund, several students have been apart of the programme for the past 4 years.

The sports scholarship programme is open on a yearly basis for all University of Leicester students to apply for. There are 3 types of scholarships that are awarded, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
