The Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) is a government funded programme to support and fast-track young sporting talent, the potential medal winners of the future! TASS offers sport specific services to young athletes with sporting promise in a wide range of sports, with the aim of helping them fulfil their sporting potential whilst continuing their education. TASS provides athletes with a tailored package of services worth up to £3500 in value. Awards are granted on an annual basis with nominations made by their individual sporting National Governing Bodies.
Once accepted onto the scheme, support is provided through a network of accredited Universities and Colleges throughout England. As a TASS partner institution Team Northumbria has a great deal of experience servicing TASS athletes studying at Northumbria University. Further details can be found on the TASS website www.tass.gov.uk
