NF SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS

Be selected to our program where we work focused to take you to the professional level.

NF SCHOLARSHIP

Each year we select players for our International and Regional Scholarship where we in collaboration with player and family give our full support in developing the player and create career pathways to professional contract with top academies.

Through our collaboration with NFPM, we finance development activities for players and start preparing them for a professional career abroad.

WHO IS IT FOR?

NF Academy select players in the age 13 to 16 years old for the scholarship program. To be selected we need to see an international potential in the player, and the player needs to show a commitment to work hard and focuses on the goal to reach a professional career abroad.

Players who want to be evaluated for Scholarship can sign up in NF International events that are hosted in many cities in Nordic countries this summer.

SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Best way to get evaluated for our scholarship program is to participate in our programs. A good start is to sign up in one of our local programs, but to do a complete evaluation it is an advantage that you also participate in one of our international programs where you for a full week will work closely with our coaches.

Send us a request to identify which programs you can participate in to be evaluated for the scholarship program.

CAREER MANAGEMENT

If you are in a professional club that does not allow you to do trials or activities with NF Academy, send us an request and we will try to send one of our coaches to watch matches if you have an interesting profile. Before we do this, it is great if you can send us some videos from matches with club team, regional team and/or youth national team.

TOP ACADEMIES

Sporting CP is our main partner in sending players for trials. If players receive a positive evaluation from Sporting they will have the opportunity to train and participate in tournaments with Sporting in multiple weeks during the year.

We also collaborate with other top academies in Spain and Portugal and are in a process to also build a network to top academies in Scandinavia, Germany, Holland, Belgium and England.
