You will be required to write a short personal statement describing your strategy to increase sporting participation in the hall and to regularly field Hall teams in at least 3 different team sports.
Included in the application criteria will be to plan and execute a St Anselm Hall JCR/Association sports day.
The successful candidate will be chosen by a panel of 3 appropriate Association members.
The award will be paid on you taking up your place in hall for the relevant academic year.
If there is no appropriate returning candidate selected, the award will be opened up to freshers joining hall at the start of the academic year.
Please note that applications for the Sports scholarship are only accepted in the summer term.
