Winning Students

Rowing Scholarships

Rowers are nominated for a scholarship by Scottish Rowing Head of Performance Pathway, Lee Boucher.

To be considered for selection, rowers must be:

  • Following the GB Rowing Team trialling process for Senior and U23 athletes, and;
  • Part of a Scottish Rowing endorsed coaching programme

The number of places is determined by the size of the award available to the sport and, should the applications outweigh the scholarships available, places will be awarded awarded based on past performances at GB Rowing Team trials and other national level competitions, taking into account future potential.

Scottish Rowing has until 30 September to submit nominations for the current year. For further details of the nomination and selection process, or to confirm your eligibility, please contact Lee Boucher.
