Scholarships from the Institute

A limited number of scholarships to students who wish to study the Italian language and culture in Italy are offered by Italian Schools and Language Centers through The Italian Cultural Institute in New York. The scholarships consist of free tuition at schools, academies, or centers where Italian is taught to foreigners in Italy.

Applicants must be residents of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey or New York State. Prospective students should visit the websites of the schools they wish to attend to obtain all the information on the courses and services offered. The IIC declines any responsibility regarding the quality of the courses or services offered by the centers in Italy. However, the IIC will asks the students to write a brief report on the experience in Italy, evaluating all teaching and organizational aspects of the centers.

Travel Expenses and Room and Board
Travel expenses and room and board are the exclusive responsibility of the scholarship recipients, who will be assisted in the search for an accommodation by the School or Center offering the scholarship.

Communication with the Italian Schools
Once the Scholarship are awarded, all communication and relations will be handled exclusively between the scholarship recipients and the School or Center of choice, without the IIC as intermediary.

Scholarships are assigned primarily to teachers of Italian and students concentrating on Italian language and culture, but, if available, also to those interested in the study of Italian for their professions or for the preservation of the Italian heritage. All scholarships are awarded strictly on a merit basis.
