  Unipd 4 Ukraine: scholarships to support students living in Ukraine entering the university

Following the events related to the ongoing war in Ukraine, the University of Padua has activated two scholarships programmes with the purpose of supporting students living in Ukraine entering the university:

  • 50 scholarships designed to provide an immediate response to those who have just fled Ukraine and thus open to students enrolling in single course units in the academic year 2021/22;
  • 75 scholarships aimed at students enrolling in a full degree programme in the academic year 2022/23 with the aim of a long-lasting integration into the university system.
