2. Scholarships of € 10,000 for the a.y. 2016-2017
Who can apply
International students who:
1. demonstrate to either have excelled in their Bachelor's degree programme or who will obtain excellent grades in the degree programme they are studying at the University of Pisa
2. want to enrol in one of the Master's degree programmes taught in English at the University of Pisa
3. do not already have a scholarship (for which the student must provide a self-declaration statement)
There are 9 scholarships of the value of 10,000 euros, one for each Master's degree programme taught in English. Each degree programme, as part of their autonomy, will decide the timing and the criteria for the disbursement of the funds that will be allocated to the best students.
These students will not be able to request a DSU scholarship for the year 2016/2017 yet they will be able to do so for the a.y. 2017/2018, at the end of their first year.
To maintain the scholarship, the nine successful students must pass the evaluation by the Master's degree Committee, based on an overall assessment which evaluates criteria such as participation in lessons and the fulfillment of all the educational activities planned (laboratories, written assessments, number of CFU earned, examination marks, etc.). In case of negative evaluation by the Committee the scholarship will be suspended.
How to apply
Interested candidates have to follow the standard application procedure established by the chosen Master's degree programme. Please visit the "Admission requirements" web page.
Once a Master 's degree programme committee has selected the candidates who have been accepted into its programme, the committe will then choose which of those students will receive the scholarship. The International Office will inform the selected student.
