Apply today for fully funded masters in Sport Ethics and Integrity

5 | 3 | 2024

Olympians can apply now for a full scholarship for the Erasmus Mundus Master in Sport Ethics and Integrity (MAiSI) funded by the IOC Olympic Solidarity programme.

This world-class two-year masters degree is taught by six leading universities in multiple European locations.

The scholarship covers all tuition fees and includes a generous travel grant and monthly stipend of €1000. For more information, including entry requirements, click here.

Alumni of the programme work in organisations such as the IOC, IPC, World Athletics, National Anti-Doping Organisations, National Olympic Committees, and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. Many go on to undertake full scholarship PhD programmes.

Shajan Aminath OLY, President of the Maldives NOA and Deputy Minister of Sport, Fitness and Recreation in Maldives, says “MAiSI was an eye-opening journey for me. I learned about pressing issues in sports through countless stories and case studies. The classes were not only fascinating but also provided ample networking opportunities.

Being part of the Erasmus Mundus program, MAiSI took me on a transformative adventure navigating different university systems and embarking on a new journey in a different country each semester. 

What sets MAiSI apart, though, are the incredible friendships forged with people from all corners of the globe. Two years spent with colleagues from diverse backgrounds allowed me to immerse myself in their cultures, savor unique cuisines, and build unbreakable bonds month after month. MAiSI truly is an aMAiSIng program!”

Education Team member at the International Testing Agency, Nikki Hamblin OLY added, “I am so grateful for the opportunity I was given through the Olympic Solidarity scholarship to complete MAiSI. The programme gave me the tools to contribute to the integrity of sport and to the protection of athletes. The exposure to experts in academia and the professional world guided and inspired me and I am proud to be a member of a global alumni group who are making a positive difference.”
