Female Scholarships

16 – 19 Female Football & Education Scholarship Programme

Future Pro Academy provides a two-year, full-time course for players who are looking to take their game to the next level. The course is open to players who are looking to develop their game and continue their education enabling the student-athlete to upskill themselves on and off the field of play.

This course aims to build upon sports skills and knowledge, develop transferable skills, and gain the opportunity to take your studies onto higher education. The balance of both football & education makes our programme unique and enhances sporting excellence to achieve success.

Student-athletes will study a variety of nationally-recognised qualifications within sport, coaching and fitness.
