The scholarship was set up by former FIFA President, Mr. Joseph S. Blatter, in honour of his predecessor President, Dr. João Havelange, who stepped down from his role in 1998. The CIES manages on behalf of FIFA the evaluation and awarding of scholarships through a Selection Committee composed of academics specialised in the field.
