At Rome Business School, we understand the financial burden required for an international education.
To support our students on this path, we offer partial coverage scholarships (up to 30% of the cost of the course) to the most deserving students. This is how we reward highly motivated students who have demonstrated excellence in one or more disciplinary areas related to the master for which admission has been requested.
Scholarships are awarded to eligible candidates who demonstrate the most potential. For this reason, each round of the Admissions Committee takes consideration of a high number of scholarship applications. The committee selects roughly 1 out of every 5 for distribution of the existing scholarship or grant fund. For these select few, the committee takes into account several factors, including but not limited to previous academic performance, outreach and involvement in community activity, professional and career achievements, but most importantly, motivations and aspirations.
The competition for scholarships increases as the start date approaches and funds are limited, so it is advisable to make the request as soon as possible.
Rome Business School offers the opportunity to the most deserving candidates to benefit from 7 different types of scholarships. These partial economic coverages can consist of 6 months of interest-free financing.
