Scholarships


Eternal City Education NPO is a non-profit organization and associate of Eternal City Education LLC. ECE NPO was established and registered in the US to provide scholarships for students enrolled in any Eternal City Education Italian study abroad course programs, deferring the cost of the course program. We also accept donations to our scholarship programs.

At present, Eternal City Education Non-Profit offers three scholarships:

The Victoria scholarship

  • 1st place 750$
  • 2nd place 500$
  • 3rd place 200$.

The scholarship money will be refunded to these top students at the programs end.

The S.P.Q.R. scholarship

Is a needs based study abroad scholarship to be provided for students who come from a a household in which the net income is $50,000 to $35,000. These students are eligible for:

Students must still cover cost of round trip flight to and from Rome (Please see further FUNDRAISING and Aquila Scholarship)

All scholarships awarded to students are contingent on acceptance, enrollment, and participation in the associated ECE program.

The Aquila scholarship

The Aquila Scholarship is, like the S.P.Q.R scholarship, a needs based study abroad scholarship. This scholarship is for those students who have already received another full or partial scholarship to any of the Eternal City Education study abroad course programs, but are still unable to raise the money necessary to buy a round trip flight to Rome. The fund for the scholarship is provided in part by the money donated by various parties to our nonprofit Eternal City Education NPO and also by the charity and cooperation of several major airlines. Currently we are working with these airlines to secure the donation of flyer miles which may be used these to reduce, and ultimately defer, the cost of flights for ECE students in the future.

All scholarships awarded to students are contingent on acceptance, enrollment, and participation in the associated ECE study abroad course program.

SPQR Scholarship funds are contingent on sufficient funds donated to ECE. Adjustments to the funds available for these scholarships will be made accordingly and the final amounts will be communicated directly to the prospective ECE students before any deadline dates.
