Meet some of our sporting captains and Vice-Chancellor’s Scholars
Vice-Chancellor’s Scholars demonstrate how the scholarship has benefitted them. Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships are available to those who demonstrate excellence (e.g. participation at a national or international level) in sport, music and the arts and provide a financial contribution to the successful applicants.

Durham University Scholarships for Sport
This year will see an exciting new development in our Sports Scholarships programme which is designed to support outstanding students in the pursuit of the best possible university experience.
At Durham University we believe in creating an environment in which academic excellence can be combined with opportunities for personal development. One of the most rewarding ways our students further their personal development is by taking part in the wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer at Durham. Specifically, our students are amongst the most talented in the country in the field of sport. We are therefore pleased to confirm that in addition to our existing Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships for Sport we will also be offering new Weldon-le Huray Scholarships and Palatinate Scholarships for Sport.
Relationship Between The Three Potential Scholarship Opportunities
The existing Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship for Sport will be complemented as our principal award mechanism by the new Weldon-le Huray Scholarships. These, in turn, will be supported by the Palatinate Scholarships.
