Fitness Savvy UK Scholarship

Fitness Savvy is pleased to announce the start of our annual £2,000 scholarship for college and university students working towards a relevant qualification. Those studying courses relating to Sport Science, Nutrition, Exercise, Food Science, Medicine or Biology are eligible to apply.

About the Fitness Savvy Scholarship

We’re passionate about fitness and promoting healthy living – that’s the reason we started this company. All of the articles published on the Fitness Savvy website rely on scientific studies and review papers to help provide the best advice and guidance. Without the specialists in these fields, we would not exist.

For this reason, we are keen to invest in talented individuals and will award one person with a £2,000 scholarship. These funds may be used in the way you feel most benefits your studies.


To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be:

  • Attending an undergraduate or postgraduate course at a recognised UK institution (student ID number required)
  • Studying towards a relevant qualification such as Sports Science, Applied Sports Science, Health & Exercise Science, Sports & Exercise Science, Biology, Nutrition etc. We have included a list of relevant courses at the end. If still in doubt, please contact [email protected] to check if your course qualifies.
  • At least 16 years of age

The winner and shortlisted finalists give Fitness Savvy permission to publish:

  • Your entry
  • Your name
  • Your hometown

How to Apply

Please select one of the following three subjects for your submission:

  1. Magnesium-Rich Foods & Supplements to Avoid Deficiency
  2. Vitamin D Deficiency – Symptoms, Treatment & Causes
  3. Zinc Deficiency – Symptoms & Signs

Once you have decided on a topic, follow these guidelines:

  • Prepare an article of between 2,000 – 3,000 words
  • Include citations using MLA format
  • Email your submission (as a Microsoft Word .doc) to [email protected]
  • Along with your submission, include the University/Institution name, course code, your student ID (scan or photo)


The deadline for entries for the 2019 scholarship fund is 31st March 2019.

Verification Process

Before judging, all entries will be verified to ensure that eligibility criteria are met. If we are not satisfied with any of the info provided, we will be in touch for clarification.

Once verified, submissions will be moved to the judging stage.

Decisions & Judging

The Fitness Savvy judges will rate each submission and shortlist one entry from each topic. The shortlisted submissions will be published in the Health & Fitness section of the website.

The overall winner will be chosen, with the help of the public, however, this will not be a public vote. We encourage finalists to reach out and invite colleagues, peers, mentors and associates to support their submission by either commenting on the article itself or linking to the article from a blog or website in a relevant and/or persuasive way.

The comments should not be used to compare each of the finalists’ articles. They should, instead, look to highlight the article’s merit; draw attention to details which the layperson might otherwise overlook, or simply provide positive feedback.

It is a not a popularity contest whereby the article with the most comments or links wins: rather, this is a method we use to gain further input to fairly choose a winner.

Winner Announcements

Taking on board all the comments received, Fitness Savvy will announce the winner on the website and social media channels no later than 31st July 2019.

The £2,000 scholarship fund will be transferred to the successful applicant no later than the 31st August 2019, ahead of the start of the 2019 academic year.
