Bologna is the capital of Emilia-Romagna, a region in the north of Italy that is known for its ancient architecture, rich food, and the seaside. Maybe because Bologna is legendary for its traditional cuisine (tagliatelle al ragù and lasagne alla bolognese are a few examples of the many.)
The University of Bologna, founded in 1088, is the oldest university in continuous operation. It was the first place of study to use the term universitas for the corporations of students and masters.
The University of Bologna hereby offers Study Grants to deserving International Students who wish to register for First Cycle (Bachelors), Second Cycle (Masters) or Single Cycle Degree Programmes at the University of Bologna.
Unibo Action 2 study grants are assigned on the basis of SAT and GRE test scores.
