This is the latest opportunity offered by WOA and the World Academy of Sport as part of an ongoing partnership to create more educational and employment opportunities for Olympians.

Last month, two fully funded scholarships for the same University of London course, starting in September, were awarded to Simona Castro OLY (Gymnastics, Chile) and Sebusiso Keketsi OLY (Boxing, Lesotho).

Please get in touch with the team if you have any questions about the application or scholarship.
