Coventry Bears launch Scholarship with Coventry University
Coventry Bears and Coventry University have a unique partnership in developing Student Rugby League. One of the key initiatives is the Rugby League sports scholarships scheme which offers talented Rugby League players a great opportunity to apply for a scholarship while studying at Coventry University. Students also have the opportunity to get involved with Coventry Bears who are planning on stepping up to the higher tiers of semi-professional Rugby league in the near future.
Each year a select number of our talented Rugby League players also benefit from our first class sports scholarship scheme.
Coventry University Rugby League currently participates in the Midlands Premier Division of Student Rugby League and has aspirations to compete at the highest level. Our close links with Coventry Bears Rugby League Club ensures that the University team benefit from their coaching expertise. This partnership also provides a direct pathway for our talented players to compete at higher levels of Rugby League which we hope our scholars are able to achieve during their time studying here.
Coventry University Sports Scholarship scheme offers a support network enabling the scholar to balance the demands of performance sport and academic study, helping them to achieve the highest level of success in both areas.
The scheme provides both financial support and a diverse range of support services including pre-season screening, physiotherapy, sports psychology, sports nutrition, strength and conditioning, performance analysis, mentoring, performance workshops and flexible study.
There are two levels of scholarship available depending on the level of representation and performance of the athlete.
£1500 (£750 bursary and £750 towards support services)
£3000 (£1500 bursary and £1500 towards support services)
