Grants for students

The Institute has established this Fund to finance various types of support for students who could not otherwise afford to participate in the Master´s programme.

At present the main types of support are:

Tiruchelvam Grants named after Neelan Tiruchelvam these grants go to students from countries in category C of the list drawn up by the International Sociological Association. They cover part of  the cost of the tuition fees and lodging in a shared room for a period of 6 months in the Institute’s Hall of Residence.

Renato Treves Grants named after Renato Treves, these grants go to any student who can demonstrate need. The amounts granted can vary according to the particular circumstances of the student, to cover up to half of the tuition fees and/or lodging in a shared room in the Institute’s Hall of Residence.

Student Activity Grants These are small payments made for activities such as participation in a conference, or to fund a research resource such as special software or hardware.

The Tiruchelvam and Renato Treves grants are decided by the Master´s Programme Committee of the Governing Body. The Student Activity Grants are awarded by the Scientific Director.(+ info)
