Sports Scholarship

Being the forerunner in launching initiatives that fuel University’s growth, REVA University has a history of sporting success and is passionate about supporting promising athletes during their time at REVA.


Apart from extending up to 100% waiver on fee and providing free accommodation with food, and other benefits, the programme also focuses on:

  • A flexible curriculum with adjustable study plans made to assist athletes in accessing study materials online while they focus on their sports.
  • The Special supplementary examination for athletes who may not be able to attend the exams due to their sporting commitments, is another such addition which keeps the focus on the athlete’s requirements.

REVA is one of the few Universities which has incorporated holistic wellness into its sports curriculum. This focuses on the mental and emotional health of the athletes:

  • Counselling on stress & mental health management
  • Career guidance
  • Active yoga & recovery sessions
  • Rehabilitation sessions
  • Additionally, there are services for nutrition, injury prevention, physiology workshops, and physiotherapy which are made available.

By guiding athletes on what else they can do apart from competitive sports, we assist them in shaping what they want to accomplish in the future. This is a unique addition implemented recently as many athletes don’t know what lies ahead.
