Scholarships

Both Leeds Beckett and Leeds University have Sports Scholarships and support initiatives available for exceptional athletes:
 
  1. Leeds Beckett - Cash for BUCS Points
  2. Leeds Beckett - Carnegie Scholarships
  3. University of Leeds - Cash for BUCS Points
  4. University of Leeds - Triathlon Scholarships Programme
  5. Talent Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS)
 

Leeds Beckett - Cash for BUCS Points

There is a £1000 prize pool for Leeds Met triathletes to earn cash in BUCS events. Each point earned either individually or as part of a team will be worth £10. To get a payout you must earn a minimum of 5 points. The eligible events are: the Duathlon, the Modern Biathlon, the Sprint Triathlon, the Olympic distance Triathlon and all the BUCS points scoring cycle events. Once the £1000 has been earned it has gone so there is a particular incentive to do well in the early events. The BUCS points are loaded in favour of team results with the Top 8 teams getting points and only the Top 4 individuals. This means that you don't necessarily have to be a super-star to earn some points.

Leeds Beckett - Carnegie Scholarships

Leeds Beckett have been supporting students to reach their potential through the Carnegie Sports Scholarships Scheme since 2002. Scholarship holders receive technical, pastoral and financial support to help develop their sporting performance alongside their studies.
 
Two different levels of scholarship are on offer:
  1. Carnegie Sports Scholarships
  2. Carnegie Focus Sports Scholarships

More information can be found on the Leeds Beckett website: https://www.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/sport/sports-scholarships.htm

Closing Date for Applications for the 2015/2016 Academic Year is Friday 9th October 2015

University of Leeds - Triathlon Scholarships Programme

The University of Leeds Triathlon Scholarship programme helps elite triathletes combine academic and sporting excellence during their time at university. The University is committed to ensuring elite triathletes are able to compete at the highest level, whilst studying for a world-class degree. To facilitate this triathlon scholarship are awarded to those selected onto the Leeds Triathlon Centre Development Programme.

How do I apply?

Leeds Triathlon Centre trials take place during the first two weeks of the new academic year (this is usually the first two weeks in October).  Following trials, the name of any Leeds University student selected onto the Development Programme will be sent by the Leeds Triathlon Centre coaching team to David Bond, Club and Competitions Manager for Leeds University Sport and Physical Activity who administers the Triathlon Scholarship Programme. Once approved, successful triathletes will be contacted. New Scholars will remain provisional until after the Christmas break. As long as scholars maintain good standing with University of Leeds Sport & Physical activity and meet their responsibilities to the Leeds Triathlon Centre programme they will remain a scholar until the start of the next Academic year (usually end of September).

Talent Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS)

TASS is a unique government backed partnership between talented young athletes, educational institutes and National Governing bodies of sport.
The scheme provides a support system, driven through partnership working between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), Further Education Colleges (FECs), National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) and other sports organisations. TASS aims to span the gap between school and junior representative sport and world class sport for young people beyond the statutory school leaving age. The TASS scheme complements other existing talent development and performance opportunities.
 

WHAT DOES TASS OFFER?

  • TASS provides athletes with a tailored package of service worth up to £3,500 in value.
  • These may include Coaching, Strength and Conditioning, Lifestyle Support, Physiology and Sports Medicine.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

  • Each year we support roughly 600 athletes, aged over 16 years old who are currently in education whilst competing at an elite level.

HOW DO WE OFFER IT

  • TASS awards are annual, and run from 1st October to 30th September. Nominations are made by the individual sporting National Governing Bodies, which also plan how each chosen athlete’s award is spent. Athlete’s do not receive the money up front.
  • Forty-seven different sports are covered by the scheme of which triathlon is one.
  • Athletes must be competing at National or International level in their sport and be nominated for a TASS award by their National Governing Body.
