Cattolica Africa Scholarship Program 2021-2023 for African Masters Students – Italy

The Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (UCSC) offers masters scholarships for African students to study for selected programs for 2021/2023 academic year through the Cattolica Africa Scholarship.

 Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, as part of its mission to foster relationships with developing countries, has developed a special program for students from the African continent. This program will enable students to study for undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs taught in English at UCSC’s Milan, Piacenza and Cremona campuses.

Through the Cattolica Africa Scholarship, all accepted applicants will be offered tuition fee reductions (see the chart below). However, students will still be responsible for their own living expenses, hence the Cattolica Africa Program is NOT a program through which full scholarships can be obtained.
