World Rugby recently announced a scholarship programme that will provide its member federations with greater opportunities to learn new skills that can help them improve their lives and the communities around them.
The scholarships are being offered in partnership with the World Academy of Sport (WAoS), a leader in developing specialist education programmes in the sports industry.
The partnership will provide immediate opportunities for member federations with one fully-funded scholarship and 10, 50% scholarships available for WAoS’ and University of London’s recently launched Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) in International Sports Management. The fully online course can be completed over a period of up to five years, recognising that industry professionals require varying levels of learning at different stages in their careers as many have limited time available.
Additionally, WAoS is offering 100 scholarships for each of the national members for the WAoS Athlete Certificate which is an online course developed for student athletes aged between 16 to 18 years of age who want to gain a broader understanding of the tools needed to become successful and knowledgeable athletes. The course has been designed and written by content writers who work regularly with athletes and has been overseen by an expert reference group representing a number of international federations.
