Our overall scholarship programme is supported by donations to university. Details of this can be found here. We also award a scholarship(s) for field hockey each year. The Davidson-O’Connor Sport Scholarship is a one-year award for a female or female identifying, student studying at the University of Brighton who is participating in field hockey at an elite or talent level. The award is made possible by donor and alumnae, Dr Judith Davidson, in memory of fellow alumnae Maureen O’Connor who played field hockey for England. 

 

 

How to apply

Applications are open between January and July for the following academic year.
