Every year, the Foreign Ministry grants scholarships to Italian citizens interested in studying at the College of Europe.
For the 2021-2022 academic year, subject to budget availability, a maximum of 25 scholarships of € 14,300 will be awarded to partially cover the costs of the College.
Scholarships will be awarded to eligible candidates, among those admitted to study at the College of Europe, on the basis of the evaluation of their qualifications and the documentation provided, as well as the results of an interview.
The Foreign Ministry scholarship may not be combined with other scholarships, or other grants for the same purpose, received from Italian (central or local) government entities, or with European grants or other scholarships for the College of Europe. If the candidate is also the beneficiary of any of the above-mentioned grants, he/she must immediately inform the Ministry and choose between only one of the grants.
In the event that a Foreign Ministry scholarship holder also benefits from private grants or scholarships, he/she must inform this Ministry, subject to the condition that the two scholarships combined (Foreign Ministry + other private scholarship) must not exceed the sum of € 26,000, which represents the cost for one academic year at the College of Europe.
The selection interviews will be held on 29, 30, 31 March and 1 April 2021.
CONDUCT OF INTERVIEWS:
According to the measures adopted by the Italian Government for the prevention and containment of the spread of the COVID-19 infection, both the interviewing committee and the candidates will be linked by videoconference via the WEBEX platform.
