- World Politics and International Relations;
- Electronics Engineering;
- Computer Engineering;
- Molecular Biology and Genetics;
- Master in International Business and Economics;
- International Master Program in Cooperation and Development
Number of awards
Six (6) scholarships will be granted for this session
The scholarship is intended to cover only two semesters (one Academic year) and, so far, it may not be extended.
If you are selected for a course which lasts more than one year (a Master usually lasts two years), possibly, you might have to pay the expenses for the following years with your own resources. However, if you complete successfully the first year of your Master Degree you can apply again for a scholarship offered through the Fund for Cooperation and Knowledge scholarship award and there are very good chances to get it.
UNIPV offers scholarships of €8000 Euros each during the academic year 2015-2016. Each scholarship will cover also the expenses for the Visa and for the travel to Italy and back (economy class).
