Malta Trust Foundation offers three fully funded scholarships at LUISS University in Rome
The Malta Trust Foundation, chaired by President Emeritus Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, is once again making higher education more accessible to disadvantaged young people through Enhance, a project which offers different scholarship possibilities to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Enhance is one of 12 projects carried out by the Malta Trust Foundation. TMTF makes fully funded scholarships available at the famous LUISS University in Rome. This scholarship aims to support people with refugee status and people with subsidiary protection, as well as disadvantaged young people in Malta and Gozo. This is made possible through the continued collaboration between the Malta Trust Foundation, the Fondazione Terzo Pilastro-Internazionale and the LUISS University of Rome.
Three different scholarships are made available for the 2021/2022 academic year: bachelor’s degree programs in economics and business; bachelor’s degree programs in politics: philosophy and economics; and bachelor’s programs in management and computer science.
These studies will be conducted in English and are open to refugees or persons enjoying subsidiary protection, refugees or other disadvantaged students residing in Malta and Gozo.
The scholarship awarded to the three selected applicants will cover tuition fees, teaching materials, travel costs and board and accommodation in Rome for three academic years.
Interested applicants should complete the online application form by Thursday 3 June.
The vision of the Malta Trust Foundation is to establish long-term commitments and collaborations with certified academic entities, in order to support and sustain the development and growth of disadvantaged people and all relevant NGOs, which support the good -being from the Maltese community. at large.
In recent years, TMTF has already funded this scholarship to three local students.
Commenting on this positive initiative, Coleiro Preca underlined the role of this organization in Maltese society as being vital to “invest in children and young people to improve their life prospects”.
“Thanks to Progetto Mediterraneo, we have already managed to support three young people through an incredible educational experience, and we are happy that we can now offer a similar experience to three other young people living in Malta. It is truly a unique experience to be a student at LUISS University in Rome, not only because it is an excellent educational institution, but also because it offers an extraordinary multicultural experience.
TMTF is currently working on securing sponsorships and collaborations with various stakeholders to strengthen its capacities at the steering committee level.
