The Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) is an initiative that receives funding from Sport England.
It has the following mission: ‘A world leading partnership between education and sport to help talented athletes in England fulfil their potential and balance their sporting development with their education and training.’
Who is it For?
TASS supports athletes who are currently unfunded by UK Sport and who sit somewhere close to the standard required for entry into Podium/World Class Development programmes.
The Army has established a strong relationship with TASS and selects and funds, through the Army Sport Control Board (ASCB), talented Army athletes for placements regionally at universities or in the Aldershot hub to receive TASS support.
