Sporty Students Get Scholarly Help

With the Olympics less than a fortnight away, Coventry University has boosted the hopes of young sporting stars hoping to make it to future Games.

A total of 16,000 in Sport Scholarships have been awarded to seven new students, including two Warwickshire students, who begin their studies this month.

Among those receiving scholarships is Helen Don-Duncan who has been selected to swim backstroke for Great Britain at the Olympic Games in Sydney.

Helen, who will be studying for a degree in Sport Science, will receive 4,000 in support, by being given rent-free accommodation in the university's halls of residence.

She will also be given back-up from a mentoring scheme which will provide her with support as she balances her academic commitments with her sporting activities.

The two local beneficiaries are swimmers from Kenilworth and Warwick.

Simon Duckham, from Lindsey Crescent, Kenilworth begins studying for his Coventry University Sports Science and Business Management HND at Warwickshire College, Leamington, in September.

He will receive 2,500 in support, and benefit from the academic mentoring scheme.

Sally Stevens from Chase Meadow, Warwick, will study for a degree in Sport Science with Human Resource Management from September.

She will receive 1,500 in support and academic mentoring.
