Do you want to win a scholarship to learn Italian? This is your opportunity! The Italiani.it Foundation project has started. It promotes the study of the Italian language in the world. The project, intended for descendants of Italians (and not only) residing in Latin America, aims to offer an opportunity to access an Italian language course to people who have never studied Italian but who have the desire to do so.
The Italiani.it Foundation will fund 12 Italian language scholarships.
Italian language scholarships
The idea of offering scholarships was born bearing the values, mission and purpose of the Italiani.it project in mind: the spread of the Italian language and culture in the world. A goal that, day after day, involves all those who are part of the large italiani.it family: the largest network of Italians in the world.
This is the first time that we launch such a project and we want to make any effort to give those who, for various reasons, have never studied Italian the opportunity to start learing it. The scholarships of the Italiani.it Foundation are for adolescents and adults residing in Latin America.
