(SFC) JTA, a leading sports PR and international relations agency, today announced its MSA scholarship for the Russian International Olympic University in Sochi. The scholarship will be in place for the inaugural semester at RIOU in September and will include the period during the Sochi 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

The selected student will have his or her tuition costs covered for the MSA programme at RIOU’s campus at the heart of the Sochi 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Students will gain knowledge and skills in relation to sports organisations, sports events and sports event management in the MSA programme.

“JTA already has a strong, established relationship with the Russian International Olympic University and the Sochi 2014 Organising Committee,” JTA Chairman Jon Tibbs said. “This scholarship is a symbol of JTA’s commitment to RIOU and the Sochi 2014 legacy. The feeling of excitement in anticipation of next year’s Winter Games is already tangible. We are delighted to have the opportunity to offer a British student the unprecedented opportunity to experience this excitement within a world-class educational institution such as RIOU.”

“This scholarship is a powerful gesture of support from JTA after a number of fruitful years working together,” RIOU CEO Professor Lev Belousov said. “We are glad that yet another talented and deserving student will have the chance to join our first intake in 2013 before they enter the Olympic world as highly qualified managers.”

The 500,000-ruble scholarship will cover the full tuition fee, but not accommodation costs in Sochi. Once approved for the MSA course by RIOU, students can apply for the JTA scholarship.
