To further this important element of FISU’s work, it is again pleased to announce that applications are now open for the Dream Together Master scholarship opportunity provided by FISU and the Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea. Selected students will commence their studies in September 2023.
This unique programme provides students an opportunity to develop sport management skills to further their career plans in sport. Scholarship candidates must be of non-Korean nationality and from a country noted in the List of Official Development Aid (ODA)
