Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Italy invites international students to apply for the 100 tuition fee waivers and 90 one-time scholarships of € 5,000.00 for high-achieving international students enrolling in any bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes for 2018. This excludes joint or double degree programmes in the 2018/2019 academic year.
The school was the first institute of higher education in commerce in Italy, and was from the outset conceived as a national rather than a regional institution; it had a diplomatic arm to prepare commercial consular staff for overseas service and was also a training college for secondary school teachers of commercial subjects. Foreign languages were taught from the start. The school was modelled on the Institut Supérieur de Commerce d’Anvers, founded in 1853 in Antwerp, Belgium.

- The tuition fee waivers will provide up to 100 international outstanding students with exemption from the payment of university tuition fees, and recipients will only pay the regional tax for the right to education (€ 184.00) and the duty stamp. Recipients can benefit from additional scholarships but cannot benefit from total and partial vouchers offered by Ca’ Foscari International College.
- The scholarships will provide up to 90 international outstanding students with one-time scholarships of € 5,000.00.
