Warriors pair amongst University of Strathclyde scholarship intake

Two Glasgow Warriors are amongst the 2020/21 intake of performance sport scholars at the University of Strathclyde, continuing the pioneering relationship between the university and the club.

Rufus McLean and Jamie Dobie will see their studies supported through the scholarship programme, which enables young athletes to flourish within their chosen sports as well as on an academic level.

Each athlete receives support including flexible academic study options, strength and conditioning services at a world class facility, world-class sports science and medical support, athlete lifestyle support workshops, and financial assistance towards training and competition costs.

Now in it’s 29 th year, the 2020/21 intake also includes Scotland and University of Strathclyde Sirens netballer Beth Goodwin and Commonwealth Games gold medal-winning cyclist Mark Stewart.

“The University of Strathclyde is just a great place to be studying right now” McLean told glasgowwarriors.org.

“The lecturers have given me so much support since I enrolled, and have been really understanding to my situation when it comes to balancing studying and being a professional rugby player.

“The Elite Athlete liaison team has really helped me out in terms of finding that balance. They’ve helped me to become a lot more independent and organised.

“I’m really excited to continue my studies at Strathclyde.”
