Scott Lang High Performance Athlete Awards

Undergraduate and Postgraduate

The Scott Lang High Performance Athlete Awards are student-athlete focussed and designed to support those who play team sport at an elite level (depending on the sport and nationality) whilst also representing the University in BUCS competition.

Out with team sport, individuals competing at an elite level (usually internationally depending on the sport and nationality) will also be considered.
