Alberto Madella Scholarship Winners 2020


The committee reviewed the applications and are delighted to announce the winners of this year’s Alberto Madella Scholarship are Samuel López Carril from University of Valencia, Spain and Luiz Gustavo Nascimento Haas from Faculdade de Motricidade Humana at Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal

The jury committee for the Alberto Madella Scholarship Fund received 17 applications for the Alberto Madella Scholarship Fund. Each of the applicants provided strong motivation to attend the EASM Conference. The jury committee have together discussed and looked thoroughly through the applications and found two really strong candidates.

We welcome applicants from all over the world, however we only provide scholarship to maximum one person per country, to achieve more diversity in scholarship recipients. (Two of the three scholarships should be awarded to individuals from European countries.) An applications country refers to the institution the individual is associated with, not the country of origin.



About the Winners:


Luiz Gustavo Nascimento Haas

“I am from Brazil, and since 2018 I have been living in Lisbon, Portugal, where I am completing a PhD in Sport Management. In Portugal, I am a doctoral student at Faculdade de Motricidade Humana at Universidade de Lisboa (FMH). My research focuses on Sport Governance, more specifically about democracy in national sport federations.”

“I have attended EASM Conferences on three occasions. In 2007 during my masters (also in Portugal), I was part of the Portuguese delegation that participated in the Student Seminar. Also, I attended in 2018 and 2019. In Malmo, 2018, I was part of the Play the Game Workshop. I presented the results of Brazil in the National Sport Governance Observer project, so at that time I was funded by Play the Game. In Seville 2019, I received funding from my university in Portugal. There, I presented a conceptual framework related to my doctoral dissertation.”

Samuel López Carril

“My name is Samuel López Carril, and currently a 3rd year PhD student in Sport Management at the University of Valencia, Spain. As a PhD student, I am looking forward to attending both the EASM Conference and EASM PhD Student Seminar.”

“My doctoral thesis project is entitled: ‘Social media as a tool for teaching, learning and professional development in Sport Management’.”
