AISTS Future Female Leader in Sport Scholarship deadline is approaching
The deadline for the International Academy of Sports Science and Technology (AISTS) Future Female Leader in Sport Scholarship is approaching – so if you’re interested in applying it’s time to get your application in.
Every year AISTS offers the scholarship with value of CHF 14,950 – equivalent to 50% of the tuition fees – to a promising female leader from anywhere in the world pursuing a career in the sports industry. The deadline for this year’s scholarship is Saturday 1st February 2020.
AISTS Executive Director, Claude Stricker, says, “It’s no secret that there is a lack of women in leadership positions within the sports industry. We’re proud to offer the AISTS Future Female Leader in Sport Scholarship, to help address this imbalance and assist an inspiring woman in achieving her goals within the industry.”
Previous recipients of the scholarship include Thayssa Plum from Brazil who currently works as senior media relations manager at FIFA, and Rida Ahmed who currently works in Athlete Relations & Engagement at the International Olympic Committee.
Speaking about the effect the scholarship has had on her life, Thayssa explains, “It’s important that there are scholarship programs like the AISTS Future Female Leadership in Sport. In my case, it’s pretty simple. It changed my life. Every girl has dreams, but not all of them have the same means. Reaching out to them, supporting their dream and making things possible is the push they need to succeed.”
Meanwhile Rida says, “The AISTS Future Female Leader in Sport Scholarship was the reason I was able to make it here and learn so much about the industry and make so many connections. The scholarship has so much potential to help other who want to transition into the field and I look forward to seeing the journeys of future applicants.“
AISTS is located in the heart of Lausanne, Switzerland – the Olympic Capital – and is home to the World’s No.1 Sports Management Master Program (Eduniversal rankings). The academy itself was co-founded by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the degree program is signed by three leading Swiss universities; EPFL, University of Lausanne, and University of Geneva.
