214 athletes across 29 sports receive bursaries from The Robertson Trust

Please note that The Robertson Trust has published its new Giving Strategy. This sets out the priorities we will have when awarding funds through our open grants programme. The existing application form and guidelines can still be used until July 31st. In line with our existing procedures, we will aim to assess and present all applications received by this date to our September Board meeting. In the event that we are unable to do so, your application may be held until our November meeting. In such cases a member of staff will contact you and provide any assistance required to realign your application with the new Giving Strategy. Find out all you need to know here.

In partnership with SportsAid Scotland, the Trust offers bursaries ranging from £300-£1000 to talented young Scots with the ability and potential to represent Scotland at the highest level of their chosen sport.

Many previous recipients of the bursary, which helps with training, coaching and competition expenses, have gone on to achieve huge success, including participation at the Olympics and Paralympics. 

This year's bursaries have been sent out to 214 athletes across 29 sports, including archery, wheelchair basketball, swimming and taekwando.
