Wirral Sports Forum’s annual bursary applications now open

The Wirral Sports Forum has announced its annual Sports Bursary award scheme is now open for application.

The Wirral Sports Forum Foundation raises money, primarily through the annual Wirral Sports Awards, Wirral’s annual prestigious multi-sport awards ceremony celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.

It aims to help local Wirral sports people who need financial support to achieve their sporting goals. This may be funding towards sports kit, travel costs to compete at an event, or a contribution to help with Sports Coaching qualifications to coach the next generation of young Wirral sports people.

The scheme is open to members of the Wirral Sports Forum, Wirral’s largest sports club network. If you are a member of a club, league or association that is not already a member of the Forum, membership applications are now open. Applications for membership are available via the Wirral Sports Forum website.

Details for Bursary applications can also be found on our Bursary website page: https://wirralsportsforum.org/bursary-awards/

The closing date for sports bursary applications is 28 May, 2024. Successful applicants will be notified no later than two weeks after the closing date. The Mayor of Wirral will host the presentation of the awards at a ceremony shortly after.
