Each semester scholarships are awarded to talented students to contribute to the cost of living in Venice for a semester, to promote excellence and diversity in the Globalization Program.

Among the students enrolled in the Globalization Program Fall 2020 term, three were selected as winners of the RED (Residency-Excellence-Diversity) Scholarship:

Lana Nastja Anžur, MA student of Archeology and Economics at Ljubljana University, Slovenia
Rémy Bisson, BA student of Sociology at University of Bordeaux, France
Margherita Tess, MA student of Anthropology at Ca' Foscari University, Italy

The three RED scholars are expected to actively contribute in promoting and organizing co-curricular activities such as the Tea2B, informal conversations on key topics that involve students, professors and staff taking place on Mondays online on zoom - and in San Servolo when the fragile pandemic situation permits it.
They will also participate in the Globalization Program Plenary Workshop, that this semester will focus on the question "Can Democracy Save the Environment?".
Their role will be mainly in the editorial team, under the guidance of prof. Pes, to document the activities of the workshop and produce some follow up materials to be published on the VIU website and on the VIUCommunity platform, where they will post follow-ups on the Tea2B meetings and share articles that might be of interest for other students.

Application for RED scholarships for the next Spring 2021 semester are open since October 15.
Students can apply until November 30, 2020, after completing pre-registration, using the link available in their personal area.
