Call for Applications – Progetto Mediterraneo

Two Scholarships for Luiss Master’s Degree Programmes available for the 2024-2025 Academic Year


In 2017, Luiss University and Fondazione Terzo Pilastro – Internazionale launched Progetto Mediterraneo, a programme of scholarships for disadvantaged students and refugees from the Mediterranean region. Progetto Mediterraneo aims to help disadvantaged students coming from vulnerable communities from various Mediterranean countries by giving them access to Luiss’ fully English-language Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree Programmes. Upon completion of their programmes, students possess the knowledge needed to continue their studies and the specific skills to pursue managerial positions that contribute to the economic and social development of the region and their communities.

Through the ongoing fruitful collaboration between The Malta Trust Foundation and Fondazione Mediterraneo, two scholarships are being made available to two disadvantaged Maltese students (residing in Malta) for the following Master’s Degree Programmes offered at Luiss University in Rome during the 2024-2025 Academic Year:

Corporate Finance
Data Science and Management
Economia e Finanza (Majors in Applied Economics or Finance)
Global Management and Politics
International Relations
Policies and Governance in Europe
Strategic Management, Innovation & Sustainability

Selected candidates will be awarded full scholarships covering tuition fees, teaching materials, travel costs, pocket money and board and lodging in Rome to cover 2 academic years up until the first available graduation session (July 2026).

Located in the heart of Rome, Luiss specialises in the Social Sciences and educates over 10,000 students, in a diverse and international learning environment. The University has adopted the enquiry-based educational approach for both residential and on-live programmes. In pursuing such an educational approach, Luiss aims to consolidate its stance in social sciences as well as enlarge the scope of its interests to include humanities, artificial intelligence, and security. Through its privileged relationship with Confindustria, Italy’s largest industrial association, Luiss has developed strong connections with the business community, government institutions, and civil society. With over 300 international partnerships, Luiss offers about 60 double and triple degree programmes developed with universities around the world and is an active member of relevant academic networks (e.g., QTEM and the European University ENGAGE.EU).
