Elite Athletes Fund

This fund is aimed at athletes currently studying at the University of the Highlands and Islands or one of its colleges who are competing in their chosen sport at national or international level and where possible representing the university/college.

The University understands that competing at an elite athlete level can be financially challenging; therefore, the fund is intended to provide monetary assistance to support participation. For example, it could cover travel to competitions, competition entry fees, training camps and accommodation.

The fund is not intended to support athletes with day to day costs such as living expenses, equipment etc.

The maximum amount that can be requested is £1000 per academic year.
