The Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) is a Sport England funded partnership between talented athletes, educated institutions and National Governing Bodies (NGBs) of sport.
The TASS Scheme helps young athletes – aged 16 plus – to get the very best from their sporting and academic studies without having to compromise.
The TASS Scheme supports more than 600 athletes in 32 Sport England sports; as promising athletes they are all able to represent England and have been identified as performing at the very top of the Sport England Talent Pathway.
The TASS Scheme is dedicated to retaining and encouraging dual career student-athletes, whilst also committing to the continuous professional development of support staff.
The TASS Scheme supports student-athletes through annual individual awards or sport-specific projects and operates during the academic year.
