Northamptonshire Coach Scholarship Scheme
* Please note that we are currently reviewing the Northamptonshire Sport Coach Scholarship scheme, with a view to re-launching it in due course. As such, all applications are temporarily closed. Thank you for your patience.
The Northamptonshire Coach Scholarship Scheme has been developed to encourage and support the personal and professional development of coaches working in Northamptonshire, through subsidising the cost of National Governing Body coaching qualifications.
Applications will be assessed on the following:
- The coach's contribution to their sport
- The coach's contribution to National Governing Body aims
- The number of paid hours coaching
- Capacity in which they coach
Applications are assessed quarterly by an external panel after which applicants will be notified if they have been successful. Please note that we cannot guarantee funding will be awarded to every applicant. We have a limited budget to allocate and would encourage all applicants to ensure they have included as much information about their current and future coaching activity paying particular attention to the criteria outlined within the Coaching Scholarship Leaflet. Whilst applications are accepted all year round, they are assessed following the closing dates below:
- 17th February 2017
We are now updating our system so all communication regarding this scheme (i.e. grant forms and acceptance letters) will be sent via email. If this is a problem, please let us know on application.
Northants Girls Can Coach
In line with Women's Sport week 2016 (3rd – 9th of October), Northamptonshire Sport will be re-launching its Female themed Coach Scholarship round from the 3rd of October, which we will accept applications from everyone but additional funds will be included specifically to support women achieve coaching qualifications!
The scholarship round will last from the 3rd of October until the 17th of February. For more information and to complete an application see here.
IMPACT Disability Coach Scholarship
As part of Northamptonshire Sport's IMPACT volunteering project, we are currently offering funding to support the qualification of Disabled Sports Coaches, Activators and Leaders. Applicants can apply for up to 50% towards the cost of their course where they are able to illustrate how gaining the qualification will support one or more of the scholarship aims. This bursary will run alongside our ongoing Coach Scholarship and you can find out more by clicking here.
