Rome International Scholars Program

October 24, 2017 • Categories: Research News

Italian Studies at Notre Dame is happy to announce their co-sponsorship of the Rome International Scholars Program, applications for which are being accepted until November 1. Launched in the spring of 2016 by Notre Dame International and the Rome Global Gateway, the Program brings select undergraduates recruited from across disciplines and departments to Rome for a semester. Qualified students are invited to apply by Nov. 1, 2017. This special program is specifically designed for self-motivated students who would value the opportunity to undertake independent research during the Spring semester of Junior year that would ideally lead to senior thesis projects during senior year, and/or subsequent development of post-graduate research, including post-graduate fellowships and post-graduate studies. A key feature of the program is the opportunity for experiential learning, which can take the form of either an internship or service engagement to be conducted in Rome. Students admitted to the Rome International Scholars Program are eligible for funding for further language and/or disciplinary study and/or internship in Italy during the summer following their semester in Rome.

For further information, please visit the application page on the NDI website, and feel free to view these videos of two senior Italian majors, Andrew Guinan and Joe Strasz, describing their time in Rome.
