[Italy] 38 Scholarships at Alta Scuola Politecnica (ASP), Italy

Call for Applications
reserved to foreign citizens, EU and extra EU

The Alta Scuola Politecnica (hereafter indicated as ASP) is launching a call for applications addressed to young talents who want to develop their interdisciplinary capabilities for leading and promoting innovation.

Founded by Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Torino, the ASP may be attended only by talents who enrol in one of their programmes of laurea specialistica (hereafter indicated as LS) in Engineering, Architecture or Design. The ASP, through a highly selective process, gives 150 promising students the opportunity to participate an additional advanced programme that runs in parallel to the LS programmes.

ASP students complement the knowledge achieved in their specific LS with a multifaceted and enriched understanding of innovation processes and contexts. They develop an interdisciplinary attitude to conceive, plan, implement and promote complex innovation projects that produce sustainable progress in economy, society and culture. The ASP is characterised by a multidisciplinary and multicultural community of students and professors, a prominent international Faculty, advanced seminars and study projects in close cooperation with business enterprises and governmental institutions.

There are 3 separate calls, each targeted to a specific group of students and with different deadlines:

1) a call reserved to foreign citizens (EU and extra EU), who have not graduated in Italy, deadline May 31st, 2007;

2) a call reserved to students who have graduated in Italy, not in the regions of Lombardia or Piemonte, to be issued on June 1st, 2007 with application deadline on July 15th, 2007;
