Supporting the next generation of sporting stars
We are committed to providing the most talented sportspeople with access to our world class teaching and sporting facilities, regardless of their circumstances. Sports scholarships are awarded on entry to students who can demonstrate sporting excellence, to assist them in reaching both their sporting and academic potential.
We aim through The Swansea Fund to raise sufficient funds each year to award a number of additional scholarships, improve facilities and support sports clubs across the University.
Thank you for supporting Swansea’s ambition to offer a world class sporting experience.
Will Jones - BSc Sport and Exercise Science
Will Jones, a current Sport and Exercise student, has made Swansea University incredibly proud by being selected to captain Wales Under 20's in the RBS Six Nations Championship. He has successfully led the Welsh team to victory in several fixtures and was also given the 'Man of the Match' award on his debut match.
Will was awarded a sporting scholarship, donated by Dr Carol Bell Chair of Swansea University’s Development Advisory Board, which assists up-and-coming athletes to pursue their academic studies.
This sporting scholarship has given Will to the flexibility to compete at the highest level while also fulfilling his academic potential in his degree.
