To be considered for selection, triathletes must:

  • Be a member of the Triathlon Scotland Performance Squads at Development level or above, or;
  • Have reached the equivalent standard in their respective home nations programme

Funding levels will be based on:

To be considered for selection, para-triathletes must:

  • Have confirmed IPC International classification and be eligible to represent Great Britain at the Paralympic Games, and;
  • Be on the BTF Para-triathlon Performance Pathway

Note: Funding level matric for para-triathlon to follow once ITU race structure confirmed

In addition to race results, athletes will be mapped against the BTF Athlete Development Framework and their commitment to refining and improving performances will be assessed before being put forward for a Winning Students Scholarship.

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 taking the above factors into account plus future potential.

Athletes going into their final year who are already in receipt of Winning Students may be supported on a non-Olympic Pathway e.g. Long Distance / Cross etc. if they are looking to race on a Pro-licence in their year of graduation. The award level would be funding Band C.

Triathlon Scotland 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 Fiona Lothian.
