#SportChangesLife said goodbye to the last of the 13 #VictoryScholars of 2015/16 over the weekend. The Scholars played a huge part in young peoples lives while here in Ireland and Sport4Development Ireland salutes them all and wishes them the very best in their future in devours.
There have been 55 Victory Scholars in total since the Sport Changes Life Victory Scholar programme was piloted with its founding partner Ulster University in 2008.
Since then the Victory Scholar programme has grown in partnership with six universities across the island; Ulster University, National University of Ireland Galway, The University of Limerick, Trinity College Dublin, IT Carlow and Waterford IT.
These university partners are key to the community outreach of the Victory Scholars who embed their positive influences within the communities they work in, all while using the skills and knowledge they have gained through their life experiences all while continuing to play the sport they love.
