The University of Alicante (UA), aware of its role in society, is committed to promoting sports in all areas through a model of competitive sport (as an influential social phenomenon) based on the principles and values of its social policies.
For this reason, the UA promotes and develops long-term projects for high-level athletes, in order to make UA competition teams (national or similar federation-based competition) more stable and structured. In this way, it is easier for high-level athletes to join UA teams and pursue studies at the same time. The aim is to have stable and competitive teams every season and make sure they are up to the standard required in their category.
These athletes have the rights set out in the Regulations for Promoting and Supporting University Athletes. Moreover, as a strategic line for promoting cultural, sporting and healthy lifestyle activities in the framework of the University of Alicante’s Strategic Funding Plan, funding schemes are launched every year to cover housing, living and basic expenses incurred by athletes who participate in federation-based competitions and pursue studies. This funding scheme is also intended as an incentive to support them in their academic life.
