ISCA to award best practices with ā‚¬3000 and trip to MOVE Congress

This Sunday 20 June is World Refugee Day and we're celebrating with a special edition newsletter featuring new opportunities (and more) for people working in Integration of Refugees Through Sport - thanks to our EU, Erasmus+ and Nordplus supported projects.

ISCA is calling for applicants for four new ISCA Awards to recognise organisations and individuals who have delivered good practices in the Integration of Refugees Through Sport (IRTS). Applicants are invited to apply by 23 June 2021 to be in the running for one or more of the following awards: IRTS Role Model, IRTS Cross-Sector Partnership, IRTS Innovation during Covid-19 and Integration of Women and Girl Refugees Through Sport.

The awards and four cash prizes of ā‚¬3000 will be presented at the ISCA Awards Ceremony at the MOVE Congress in Brussels on 17 November. All three shortlisted candidates in each category will have their trip to MOVE Congress paid to attend the ceremony.
