Coaching scholarships

Financial support is available for new and existing coaches.

Sport Scotland offer support for level 1 and 2 qualifications and candidates must apply for this first before approaching us. Our funding will then support you with a proportion of the remainder.

Each coach will be supported up to a maximum of £150.
