Scottish-Italian Scholarships 2020

Founded in 1985 by the Comitato di Coordinamento delle Associazioni Italo-Scozzesi and now administered by Italian Scotland SCIO.


  • Open to undergraduates at any Scottish university where Italian is studied to Honours level and tenable at any Italian university.
  • Candidates must not be more than 25 years of age.
  • The scholarships may be held with assistantships and other awards at the discretion of the committee.

Candidates nominated by their university will be called for a short interview before the Executive Committee. The interview is an integral part of the application process, and there may be one or two questions in Italian.


As these scholarships are intended to supplement a student’s normal income so as to enable him or her to attend a university in Italy, their value will normally be in the region of £500-£600.


Application forms must be accompanied by a brief outline of the applicant’s plans for the year in Italy and how the scholarship might help.

Application deadline: 31 January 2020
