The Rafa Nadal Foundation and I-Con Sports held a special ceremony in Barcelona yesterday to present scholarships to the nine Spanish students who, thanks to the Study and Play project, will from the next academic year have the chance to combine high-level sport with university studies in the United States.

The event was attended by the beneficiaries and their families, as well as Maria Francisca Perelló, Director of Social Integration at the Rafa Nadal Foundation, and Marc Becker, Director of I-Con Sports, the two organisations that run the program.

“The beneficiaries of Study and Play are youngsters that come from families who recognise that studying in the United States is a great opportunity for their children’s future, but would be unable to cope with the necessary costs without the financial support provided by the project”, explained Maria Francisca Perelló.

After studying each of the applications individually, the Rafa Nadal Foundation has granted financial assistance to nine students whose scholarships were not 100% covered by the American universities, and who required extra support.

I-Con Sports, a Spanish company dedicated to incorporating athletes to universities in the United States, has obtained university scholarships to the value of $219,117, while the additional financial contribution from the Rafa Nadal Foundation, and the sponsorship of Drasanvi, amounts to $53,000.
