DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES
The project University Corridors for Refugees is promoted by 10 Italian universities with the support of UNHCR, Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Caritas Italiana, Diaconia Valdese, and other partners. It aims to increase opportunities for refugees currently residing in Ethiopia to continue their higher education in Italy. 20 students will be selected to begin MA degree courses in September 2020. The selected students will be exempted from tuition fees at the universities participating in the programme and will receive financial support for plane tickets and Visa-related expenses, and a study grant to help them during their stay in Italy.
In April 2020, the University of Padua published a call for two UNICORE grants dedicated to refugees enrolling in a MA programme in A.Y.2020/21. Up to now, we are supporting the applicants interested into the call.
