The Department of Sports, Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports (MYAS) has launched a novel initiative to support candidates who are meritorious sportspersons and have represented India at Asian Games, Commonwealth Games or the Olympics to pursue the Executive Post Graduate Diploma in Sports Management (EPGDSM) Programme.

The EPGDSM programme is conducted by Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Rohtak. The Department of Sports will support the initiative for 5 years from the date of commencement of EPGDSM course at IIM Rohtak, a PIB release said.

The programme will start from September 2021 to September 2026. As per official sources, financial assistance upto Rs 5 lakh per candidate will be provided. Any other element of cost incidental to attending the programme, including travel costs, out-of-pocket expenses, will be borne by the candidate himself/herself.

The candidates will have to secure admission as per the selection criteria laid down by IIM, Rohtak and then approach the Department of Sports for considering their candidature for being nominated to the EPGDSM course at IIM, Rohtak.

“After careful consideration, nomination of such candidates, as deemed fit by the Department of Sport, will be taken. The decision of the Department of Sports in this regard shall be final and binding. The Department of Sports will release the cost of attendance directly to the IIM Rohtak at a pre-determined frequency, only in respect of such nominated that have been finally enrolled and are attending the programme,” the release read.

In the event of a candidate securing scholarship either from the IIM Rohtak or any other source, the IIM Rohtak will inform the Department of Sports forthwith and adjust the amount of scholarship against the demand raised by it to the Department of Sports, it added.
