What the 2014 PCA Scholarship Winners said – watch the video below...

The Professional Cricketers' Association (PCA) wishes to reward the most proactive member, past or present, on or off the pitch, throughout the coming calendar year. This follows the announcement in 2013 of the PCA having spent over £1m on membership educational grants over the last decade.

The Scholarship initiative also seeks to incentivise past members who have moved on to new career pathways, as well as encouraging current cricketers to think and plan away from the pitch when time allows, especially during winter months.

This year the award will have 3 categories for the winners:

  • The Personal Development Newcomer Award (for players making their first achievements in personal development)
  • The Past Player Personal development Award
  • The Current Player Personal Development Award

The winners will take home a significant financial reward that can be used towards the costs of their personal development.  Examples that the award could be used for include, costs incurred, resources costs or course fees.

Judging criteria:


  •  Development course/s undertaken and qualifications attained
  •  Cricketing development — where relevant
  •  Work placement/s undertaken
  •  Community work undertaken
  •  Willingness to embrace charitable initiatives
  •  How they would use the additional scholarship award
