About Lloyd Cowan Bursary
The Lloyd Cowan Bursary was set up in memory of Lloyd Cowan MBE, who believed that no one with sporting potential should be held back by a lack of support and opportunities. The Bursary awards grants of up to £500 once a year to qualified coaches and unfunded athletes aged 16-23, for whom cost is a barrier to accessing developmental opportunities in athletics.
Lloyd was an international athlete before hanging up his spikes and becoming one of the UK’s most successful coaches. He guided many leading British sprinters, including World, Olympic and Commonwealth 400m champion Christine Ohuruogu and European and Commonwealth 110m hurdles gold medallist, Andy Turner. Tragically Lloyd died in January 2021, aged 58, after contracting COVID-19.
