The deadline for the International University Sports Federation (FISU) scholarship programme for the Master of Sport Administration course at the Russian International Olympic University (RIOU) is closing at the end of the month.
FISU member associates must submit their candidates for the scholarship by March 31.
The Master of Sport Administration features modules in governance, marketing, sports tourism and venue management.
FISU and RIOU, based in Sochi, support one scholarship to this course every year.
Muzi Mamba, the current recipient of the scholarship, has spoken of the benefits of the course.
"Again, I would like to thank FISU and RIOU for offering me the opportunity to enrol in this prestigious university," he said.
"My experience here has been amazing.
"It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be part of such diversity and such quality of education.
"This course is so rich such that, after just a few months here, I already feel ready to face the world of sports.
"This course has prepared me for all the aspects of sports administration like governance, sports marketing, promotions, sports tourism, sports business, venue management and mega events management, to name just a few."
Mamba also had advice for future recipients of the scholarship.
"To future students, I would suggest: be ready to open up to the colleagues and make good relations with them.
"Most of them already have huge experience in sport administration in their countries."
