Study in Naples Scholarship

Within the framework of the activities planned under the Agreement with the Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, the University of Naples Federico II, to strengthen the internationalization of its Degree Courses, has issued for the academic year 2023-24 (intake 2023) a call for applications for 25 two-year scholarships, reserved for international students (Call for selection 2023 intake, updated on 23/05/2023). One scholarship was available for each International Course at the University of Naples Federico II. Because of the re-attribution of unassigned scholarships, the master's degree in Transportation Engineering and Mobility could access two scholarships for the 2023 intake.

The call for the Study in Naples scholarship for the 2024 intake (academic year 2024-2025) is still uncertain.

ADISURC Regional Scholarships

The University's policy to help international students financially is to set affordable tuition fees.
However, ADISURC, the regional administration responsible for promoting and supporting the right to study, provides regional scholarships. ADISURC sets the scholarship criteria independently of the University of Naples Federico II. Scholarships are awarded based on participation in a proper call published by ADISURC. Staying tuned for the ADISURC scholarship is up to the candidates, as the Region does not communicate the launch of the call to the University.
