O-Ringen Academy 2019: Scholarship opportunities

The organizers of O-Ringen Kolmården 2019 together with PWT Travel and in cooperation with the IOF, are pleased to invite participants to the annual O-Ringen Academy, which will take place 19-28 July, in connection with O-Ringen in Kolmården, Sweden.

The Academy provides a unique opportunity for orienteering federations and interested individuals to work on developing the sport in their home countries. The idea behind O-Ringen Academy is, through the transfer of knowledge and experience, to develop individual competency to be able to promote, organize and teach orienteering and at the same time participate in the world’s greatest orienteering event, O-Ringen.

O-Ringen Academy is primarily intended for participants from new and developing orienteering countries, where there is a need to quickly learn the skills and routines required to organize orienteering events. However, we also welcome participants from established orienteering nations who want to increase their base of knowledge. This year we also hope to get more first step young runners in ages 15-20.


The IOF Regional and Youth Development Commission will give financial support to participation in O-Ringen Academy for applicants from an orienteering developing country or a country which is not yet a member of the IOF.  Do you work actively with orienteering development in your country (especially with young people)? Apply for the O-Ringen Academy Scholarship now!
