ONAOSI Foundation postgraduate scholarships

We have three full fee scholarships on offer for students entering a one-year taught or research Masters in 2021.

  • Funding: Full tuition fee waiver
  • Academic year: 2021/22
  • Open to: Students from Italy
  • Qualification level: Postgraduate research and Postgraduate taught
  • Number available: 3
Applications for 2021/22 are closed.

The scholarship will be paid directly as a fee waiver. You will need to pay for your own accommodation, living costs and any additional costs.

These scholarships are funded by a generous donation from the ONAOSI Foundation (onaosi.it) based in Perugia, Italy. The Foundation was established to provide aid to the orphans of Italian medical personnel and has since expanded its remit to support undergraduate and postgraduate study.

Mario Torre (Department of Biology) was granted this particular scholarship, and graduated with a Masters in Molecular Medicine in January 2020. Listen to him talk about his university experience:



Open to students from Italy only.

In order to be eligible you must:
  • be normally resident in Italy

I will be forever grateful for the help I have received throughout the years from the ONAOSI Foundation. Through this scholarship, I was able to fully focus on my Master without being held back by financial worries.
