Study or research in Italy; Collegio dei Fiamminghi

Every year the Collegio dei Fiamminghi offers two scholarships for study or research in Bologna. Of course, the further evolution of the situation and measures regarding Covid-19 will be taken into account. For this reason, the Collegio reserves the right to ultimately admit only one scholarship student and will in that case decide for itself which candidate is preferred.
The scholarship amounts to 7000 euro and includes accommodation during 8 months study or research (1 academic year) at U. Bologna or another research institute in Bologna (IT).

Target group: graduating students and holders of a MA degree, young researchers.
The call is open for all disciplines and all nationalities.
