FIFA Master’s Scholarships & Financial Aid In Switzerland

Students wishing to pursue the FIFA Master in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport are invited to apply for the FIFA Master scholarship. The funding amounts to up to CHF 45,000 and is intended to cover the living expenses and the tuition fees. The deadline is on Thursday 15th July 2021.

Organised by the International Centre for Sport Studies (CIES) in partnership with three universities, De Montfort University in Leicester (England), SDA Bocconi School of Management in Milan (Italy) and the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland), the FIFA Master in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport was created to promote management education within the sports world.

The FIFA Master programme offers a total of five scholarships each year. There are two full African scholarships that cover the fees and living expenses (CHF 45,000 per scholarship).

These scholarships are for students of an African nationality only and may be divided by the scientific committee in order to help more than one applicant.

Finally, for all other applicants, there are two scholarships which cover the course fees (CHF 25,000 per scholarship).

The Scientific Committee regularly divides these scholarships among several applicants in order to help as many candidates as possible.

So, if you are applying for financial support, please be aware that receiving a complete fees scholarship is extremely unlikely.

The deadline is on Thursday 15th July 2021. 


Main Criteria

All scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Scientific Committee on the basis of academic merit and financial need.

Consequently, they cannot be applied for as such. If, however, the only way for you to successfully attend the course is through a scholarship, then you must complete the scholarship application form in full, providing as much details as possible.
