Scholarship Rules and Regulations
Scholarship application deadlines are three months prior to the start of the academic semester. See individual scholarship pages for more information on specific requirements regarding the application form and the period of study in Florence. Further information and the application form can requested from the Dean of Students at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Scholarships are open only to individual enrollments. Students who enroll through a provider, agency, or affiliated university are not eligible.
- Each scholarship is designed for a specific semester. If a student cannot attend for any given reason, the scholarship will be assigned to the second runnerup.
- Scholarships are not reimbursable for any reason whatsoever. If a scholarship holder should terminate or not complete the term of study for any reason including emergencies, he or she may not recuperate the unfulfilled period at a later date.
- Scholarship benefits cover tuition only. Housing, living, and extra study expenses (lab fees, textbooks, etc) must be covered by the scholarship holder.
- Scholarship students must be involved and participate in at least 10 hours of Palazzi and Palazzi institution-specific activities.
- We are unable to accommodate students with physical disabilities due to the lack of adequately outfitted structures in the city of Florence, many of which are inaccessible for handicapped individuals.
Creative digital solutions and resources on the web are also options that students may explore. A crowdfunding approach, such as FundMyTravel, features an online fundraising platform for students who wish to reach out to communities through personalized campaigns in order to gather funds for meaningful studies abroad.
