Scholarships from the Institute

The Italian Culture Institute encourages and promotes the study of the Italian language.

A limited number of scholarships to students who wish to study Italian language and culture in Italy are offered by private Italian Schools and Language Centers through the Italian Cultural Institute in Hong Kong. The scholarships consist of free tuition or special discounts at schools, academies, or centers where Italian is taught to foreigners in Italy.

Applicants must be residents of Hong Kong or Macau. Prospective students should visit the websites (linked below) of the schools they wish to attend to obtain all the information on the courses and services offered. The IIC declines any responsibility regarding the quality of the courses or services offered by the centers in Italy.

Travel Expenses and Room and Board
Travel expenses and room and board are the exclusive responsibility of the scholarship recipients, who will be assisted in the search for an accommodation by the School or Center offering the scholarship.

Communication with the Italian Schools
Once the Scholarship are awarded, all communication and relations will be handled exclusively between the scholarship recipients and the School or Center of choice, without the IIC as intermediary.
