'The Spotlight'

Can you help the next generation of talented sports stars to own the spotlight?

Each year, up to 50 Sports Scholars benefit from the scheme and with your help, we can support many more. All gifts, of every size are welcome and collectively can be transformational.

20 years of sports scholars

The University of Exeter Sports Scholarship Scheme is one of the most prestigious in the UK, helping the best student athletes reach their full potential. The scheme provides a comprehensive support package and is tailored to suit the needs of each individual athlete. Many of our graduating scholars have progressed to a professional level in their chosen sport and represented their respective countries on the global stage.

Since the programme was launched in 1999, nearly 200 students have benefited from the support on offer. Many of them have been able to achieve their goals thanks to the generosity of alumni and friends of the University. Below are just a few of the stories.
