Ulster University Performance Sport Scholarships 

Applications are invited from both men and women for the Performance Sport Basketball Scholarships for Basketball at Ulster University for the 2017/2018 season. 

These scholarships are intended for students currently registered at Ulster University or those students entering undergraduate or postgraduate study for the academic year 2017-18. 

Those awarded Performance Sport Scholarships for Basketball will be required to play for Ulster University in Irish Colleges and Varsity competitions, Northern Ireland Universities (if selected) and ideally Basketball Ireland National League and Cup Division 1 competitions.

The scholarships take the form of full/partial financial support of tuition fees. Additionally, scholars may benefit from strength and conditioning, mentoring and medical support. As well as opportunities to develop your basketball skills, Ulster University also provides opportunities for scholarship athletes to act as role models in the community through outreach work and coaching.
