Regional aid for sports scholarships of secondary schools in the metropolis (…)

SESSION 2022-2023


The region intervenes in favor of high school students who want to integrate the sector at a high level in metropolitan France.

Part of the Excellence in Sports Practice approach, this system aims to enable young local athletes with real potential to combine high school studies with a high-level sporting career.

Intervention methods were also established to specifically take into account the limitations associated with performing high-level sports.

Indeed, such a career perspective requires financial resources disproportionate to traditional study, both for off-site travel (training and competitions), specific equipment and clothing, and subsequent special diet and nutrition.

In addition, for these young people, who are exposed to a high work pace during the year, in terms of academic rhythm, as well as in terms of sports performance, regular family rejuvenation is essential.

This system is part of the approach of excellence in terms of sports practice by, on the one hand, supporting the mobility of athletes in their projects of access to a high level in continental France and, on the other hand, enabling young local athletes with real potential to be able to combine high school studies with a sports career at high level.
