College Rifles Rugby Club is delighted to announce the continuation of The Rifleman/T-Bird Scholarships and Apprenticeships for the upcoming year, 2024. We are committed to supporting talented individuals who demonstrate exceptional potential in both academics and rugby, providing them with financial assistance for their tertiary education. Our aim is to empower these individuals not only in their rugby endeavours but also in making a significant impact on society.

The Rifleman/T-Bird Apprenticeships, on the other hand, are designed to assist young individuals in pursuing their chosen trades, enabling them to develop practical skills and excel in their respective fields.

Successful applicants will not only become esteemed representatives of College Rifles Rugby but also embody our club's values and standards. They will contribute to all aspects of the club's well-being, including performance, spirituality, and cultural elements.​​​​​​​

Applications for the 2024 scholarships and apprenticeships are now open. To be considered, applicants must submit the following documentation:

  • Personal Statement
  • Rugby CV
  • References that highlight character, rugby ability, and performance in academic and co-curricular domains at school.

Kindly send your applications to [email protected]. The deadline for submissions is November 17th, 2023.

We look forward to welcoming exceptional individuals who will continue to uphold the legacy of College Rifles Rugby Club while making a positive impact on and off the field.
