Sky Sports Scholars
"Sky is committed to the development of sport at all levels, and with Sky Sports Scholarships we are supporting 12 of Europe's most promising young athletes to be the best they can be."
The Sky Sports Scholarship program is back with 12 new athletes from UK and Ireland, plus a rising tennis star from Germany and an Italian skier benefiting from funding and developmental support.
The Scholarship, which has already helped over 20 athletes, provides the Scholars with a unique level of support through their relationship with Sky as they develop their careers.
The programme runs from 2017-2020 and offers benefits such as financial aid, both a sporting and business executive mentor, media training, personal development and work experience.
The Scholarship programme has also opened its doors to athletes from a wider range of sports and for the first time includes Scholars specialising in tennis, modern pentathlon and climbing.
Each of the Scholars has a different and exciting story, and Sky will closely support them as they take the next steps on their journey.
