The IOC offers a range of programmes and scholarships to NOCs through Olympic Solidarity:
- Scholarships for athletes
- Scholarships for coaches
- Training programme for sports administrators
While these programmes are open to men and women alike, particular efforts are made to ensure that a growing number of women benefit from them.
In addition and in line with the IOC’s policy on the promotion of gender equality in sport, a special “Women and Sport” programme has been developed to assist NOCs with specific gender-equality activities, targeted communications campaigns, national research programmes, national seminars and participation in meetings.
