Applications for Wirral Sports Forum annual bursaries are now open – Birkenhead News

Wirral Sports Forum has announced that its annual sports bursary scheme is now open for application.

The Wirral Sports Forum Foundation raises money primarily through the annual Wirral Sports Awards, Wirral’s prestigious annual multi-sport awards ceremony, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.

It aims to help local Wirral athletes who need financial support to achieve their sporting goals. This could be funding for sports kit, travel costs to compete at an event or a contribution to help with sports coaching qualifications to train the next generation of young Wirral athletes.

The scheme is open to members of the Wirral Sports Forum, Wirral’s largest network of sports clubs. If you are a member of a club, league or association that is not already a member of the Forum, applications to join are now open. Applications for membership are available on the Wirral Sports Forum website.

Details for bursary applications can also be found on our bursaries website page:

The deadline for sports scholarship applications is 28 May 2024. Successful applicants will be notified no later than two weeks after the deadline. The Mayor of Wirral will host the presentation of the awards at a ceremony shortly afterwards.
