Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS)

TASS is a unique government-backed partnership between talented young athletes, educational institutes and national governing bodies of sport.

The University of Bath has been a TASS Delivery Site since the scheme’s creation in 2004. More than 30 TASS athletes, either in education or serving within the British Army, have access to the world-class Sports Training Village facilities and are supported within our Dual Career Programme. This community’s needs are addressed and supported with a full-time High-Performance Sport Officer, helping each individual to unlock their potential.

The 31 recognised sports eligible for TASS funding are:
