What is the Italian Service Institute Travel Scholarship?
The Italian Service Institute was established to provide education and welfare services to disadvantaged persons of Italian descent who are Australian residents and who would otherwise not have access to such services.
As a part of this service, the Institute is now proud to offer travel scholarships to Italy to support disadvantaged Monash students of Italian descent in Australia to study at the Monash Prato Centre or another university institution in Italy.
The travel scholarship on offer is to the value of $3,000 to support students with study and to provide them with a cultural experience in Italy.
It is anticipated that the first scholarship recipients will be awarded for courses and travel in 2014.
