UB Athletic Scholarships

Black Jaguars Athletic Scholarship Program

The University of Belize provides approximately 50 athletic scholarships to students. Currently, these are offered in the following disciplines: Volleyball, basketball, football, softball, track and field, and paddling. The number of athletic scholarships available yearly varies depending on the number of returning scholarship recipients and successful discipline and academic performances by student athletes.

This scholarship is tenable for duration of study toward one degree (Associate or Bachelor) and is renewable on a semester basis. Both new and returning students may apply. Only full-time students with a minimum GPA of 2.5 at UB or feeder institutions on their most recent transcript need apply.  Students on ACADEMIC PROBATION are not eligible to apply.  Students must write an essay of at least five hundred words to demonstrate financial need and academic ability or potential.  Applicants must be currently participating actively in sports. The scholarship covers tuition and fees.  Selection is made once per year in August. The deadline to apply is the last Friday in May annually.
