100 fee waivers and 90 scholarships for international students for the a.y. 2018/19

In order to strengthen its international community, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice will award 100 tuition fee waivers and 90 one-time scholarships of € 5,000.00 to high-achieving international students enrolling in any bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes except for joint or double degree programmes in the 2018/2019 academic year.

The Call for applications for the award of tuition fee waivers and the Call for applications for the award of scholarships are online and can be downloaded by prospective students.

The tuition fee waivers will provide up to 100 international outstanding students with exemption from the payment of university tuition fees, and recipients will only pay the regional tax for the right to education (€ 184.00) and the duty stamp. Recipients can benefit from additional scholarships but cannot benefit from total and partial vouchers offered by Ca’ Foscari International College.

The scholarships will provide up to 90 international outstanding students with one-time scholarships of € 5,000.00.

Rector Michele Bugliesi declared: “We understand that tuition fees are an important factor in a student’s decision about where to study. It is not by coincidence that Ca’ Foscari invests approximately 20 million euros per year in scholarships and bursaries, in order to facilitate students’ development and wellbeing, broaden participation in higher education, and enhance the benefits of diversity amongst our staff and student communities.”

He reminded prospective students that: “Our university boasts a longstanding excellence in such fields as languages, foreign cultures and economics, as well as the history of art, climate change  and green chemistry: recruiting international students and offering them tailor-made services and high-quality teaching is not only a goal, but an everyday commitment.”

Students can apply by April 30th 2018 and can request fee waivers or scholarships by including this form in their application. Successful candidates will be notified via the apply.unive.it platform.
