The era in which education and sports were viewed as incompatible is long gone. Sports and education are not only compatible components of an individual’s life, but also extremely beneficial for one another.
With this in mind, this past February, MFPA, in collaboration with ITS and MCAST, launched the MFPA Life After Football Scholarship. The Scholarship will allow beneficiaries to be able to attend courses at MCAST or ITS on a flexible schedule, whilst training with their clubs on a full-time basis. MFPA will act as a liaison between beneficiaries and the educational institutes to ensure that lectures and exams do not clash with training and game schedules. The Maltese players’ association will also be helping the beneficiaries financially, by paying for course and exam fees, as well as by giving beneficiaries an annual allowance.
Applications are now open, and will remain open all throughout the month of June 2018.
