Now that you know how much it will cost to study in Italy, you may be asking how to fund study in Italy.
International students can access the same scholarships and grants as local students which are assessed by academic merit or financial need. These are managed by the university’s DSU Office (Diritto allo Studio Universitario – Right to Education), which also provides useful information and services for students including counseling, extra-curricular activities, sports, transport and other practical matters.
The most common sources of funding for international students in Italy are:
Your home university
Schedule a meeting at your home university’s study abroad office and ask about potential scholarship money. An adviser should be able to direct you to applications and information that is exclusive to your school.
National and international programmes
Rotary International, for example, is a programme that sponsors funding for student studying and teaching abroad. Students can look online for more information about potentially getting a grant through Rotary International.
Private organisation grants
The Order of the Sons of Italy, for example, offers competitive scholarships for US applicants who are of Italian descent. Explore organisations like this—you never know what specific criteria you may fit.
