The International Institute for Sociology of Law has two types of grants for students who would like to take part in the International Master’s Programme. These grants can only be awarded to those applicants who otherwise would be unable to take the Masters course. An applicant who believes that he/she qualifies for a grant should provide details of (i) the financial situation of themselves and their family, and (ii) the efforts that they have made to secure financial assistance.
Tiruchelvam grants go to students from countries in category C of the list drawn up by the International Sociological Association (http://www.isa-sociology.org/table_c.htm). They can cover part or all of the tuition fees and of the cost of a shared room in the Institute’s Hall of Residence.
Renato Treves grants go for any student who can demonstrate need: they may cover half the tuition fees and/or some of the cost of a shared room in the Institute’s Hall of Residence.
Please note that even if you receive a grant you will need some financial resources of your own. The course is a full-time one, and it is not possible to do paid work during the programme to help finance the costs. The Institute cannot accept any responsibility for students who begin the course with insufficient resources.
