The aim of the Lennart Johansson scholarships is to support the development of talented leaders in European football and individuals showing potential to play a leadership role in football in the future.
The Lennart Johansson Scholarships for Football Leaders are named after the renowned Swedish football leader and administrator, who led European football’s governing body from 1990 to 2007 before becoming UEFA honorary President.
