Sports Awards - Blues and Half-Blues

The University of Cambridge maintains a long tradition of student participation in sport. The earliest known established sports club was the Cambridge University Boat Club in 1828, and now, nearly 200 years later, the University has more than 50 sports clubs.

The College makes small financial awards to those students receiving Blues or Half Blues, as a result of representing the University in their chosen sport, and who also perform satisfactorily in their academic work, i.e. a minimum of II.i in their Tripos examinations. Students who represent the University in a particular sport and who are awarded a Blue or Half-Blue are asked to inform the Tutorial Assistant, Mrs Celia Summerlin (, Tel. +44 1223 3 38847) of the award so that a correct record is kept.

Further information on Blues and Half Blues and related sporting activites and contacts can be found on the Cambridge University Sport website.
