ACIS Cassmarca Scholarships

Applications close Friday 5 November 2010

The Australasian Centre for Italian Studies (ACIS) is offering up to four scholarships of up to $6000 each for Australasians wishing to undertake  research in Italy during 2011. These awards are funded by the Cassamarca Foundation (Fondazione Cassamarca). Scholarships are available to students at Australasian universities who, in 2011, will be enrolled (full-time or part-time)  in honours, research master’s or PhD degrees and who will be engaged in research projects in any of the following areas of Italian studies: archaeology and classical antiquities; language; literature; culture; history; politics and society (including migration studies).

Successful applicants will already have a knowledge of Italian adequate for their research purposes. Scholarships will not be awarded to attend language classes in Italy.
