The scholarship was set up by current FIFA President, Mr. Joseph S. Blatter, in honour of former President, Dr. João Havelange, who stepped down from his role in 1998.

The CIES manages on behalf of FIFA the evaluation and awarding of scholarships through a Selection Committee composed of academics specialised in the field.
