RGU SPORT Scholarship

RGU SPORT offers a number of sports scholarships to promising athletes each year, to support them to develop their talents and succeed in their chosen sporting field whilst undertaking academic study.

RGU SPORT aims to assist with the development and promotion of sporting excellence in students of Robert Gordon University.

The annual scholarships are designed to help students in every aspect of their pursuit of sporting excellence. The scholarship is not primarily concerned with offering financial assistance to recipients, but is tailored to meet individual needs on a case by case basis.

All sport Scholarship awards include:

  • Academic flexibility
  • Strength and conditioning support
  • RGU SPORT membership
  • Sport Scholar clothing
  • Access to physiotherapy treatment
  • Mentoring support
  • Nutritional advice


Applications are open each between July and August with awards made in September. To be considered for a sports scholarship applicant must be an enrolled student of the University on at least a part time course at Undergraduate, Postgraduate or Research level; or a prospective student of the University awaiting confirmation of award of a place.

In every case, the applicant must be competing or have the potential to compete at a minimum of Junior National level in their chosen sport.
