I agree with you. That noun can be countable.
John received sponsorships from several institutions.

according to my Longman dictionary "sponsorship" is an uncount noun. So you cannot use it with "a" as in: "He was given a sponsorship."
But let's imagine the following situation: Somebody (e.g. an unknown artist) hopes to attract the attention of more than one sponsor in order to get more than one sponsorship.
Is it then possible to say: "He hoped to be offered several sponsorships" ?
To me it sounds okay but does that also apply to a native speaker?
I'm looking forward to reading your answer(s)
Thanks in advance

Buddy, the Longman dictionary is not highly regarded. Bookmark OneLook.com for free access to many reliable online dictionaries.
Additionally, click here to see 'sponsorships' used in many contexts. (Bookmark the Fraze.It website for future reference, too.)
Thank you very much, Rover_KE. These references are really valuable I've just bookmarked them!
Have a nice evening!
