About Sports Scholarships

Every year, Lincoln University offers a select group of students the opportunity to gain a world-class academic qualification, while developing their sporting ability to a professional level.

The Lincoln University Sports Scholarship programme combines academic study with the extension and development of your sporting ability.
As a sports scholar, your tuition fees will be paid for and you'll be part of our specialist athlete education programme.
Lincoln University established the Sports Scholarship programme in 1999. It was the first of its kind in New Zealand and has produced some of the country's most well-known athletes.

Lincoln offers sports scholarships in the following codes:
* Basketball
* Cricket
* Elite sports
* Football
* Hockey
* Netball
* Rugby
* Rowing.

Entry requirements
Sports scholarships are open to current and new students who already play, or have the potential to play, at representative level in their chosen sport.
If you are offered a conditional scholarship, you must achieve NCEA Level 3, plus University Entrance, or the equivalent, to accept the scholarship. You will also need to take part in fitness testing in order to qualify for selection; however, in some instances, this requirement may be relaxed.
