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

Hannah Miley - Sports Scholar

In order to promote this aim, RGU SPORT offers a number of sports scholarships to promising sports men and women to support them in developing their talents and succeeding in their chosen sporting field whilst undertaking academic study.

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.

The Scholarship

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 will be tailored to meet individual needs on a case by case basis.

Scholarships are offered on an annual basis to athletes who are at, or close to, national standard in their given sport.

Financial assistance is awarded to support travel, training, equipment and competition expenses accrued during the academic year. 

All Scholars will receive a membership to RGU SPORT and have access to the facilities for the duration of the scholarship. A full range of services are also available to the Scholar which include:

  • Fitness Testing and Anthropometry
  • Nutrition workshop and consultation
  • Performance lifestyle
  • Physiotherapy profiling
  • Strength and conditioning
