The Olympic scholarships programme offers coaches access to high-level further training and the chance to acquire experience and knowledge which they will then use to benefit their respective national sport structures.
Candidates for an Olympic scholarship must hold the rank of official national coach recognized in their country of origin and/or their respective IF.
Two options are available to coaches: training in sports sciences, which enables them to obtain a high-level qualification, at university level in certain cases; or the 'a la carte' sport-specific training, which allows them to refresh their knowledge and increase their practical experience in a specific sport.
