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 1st Semester 2022-23 of the Globalization Program, three were selected as RED (Residency-Excellence-Diversity) Scholars:

Diana Berhe, MA student of Intercultural Communication at Ludwig Maximilians Universität, Germany
Arina Saigina, MA student of Art History at European University at St. Petersburg, Russia
Carolina Hirshfield, BA student of Psychology at Tel Aviv University, Israel

The RED scholars are expected to actively contribute in promoting and organizing co-curricular activities such as the Tea2B, weekly informal conversations taking place at VIU on key topics that involve students, professors and staff.
They also participate in the Globalization Program Plenary Workshop.
Their role is mainly in the editorial team, under the guidance of Professor Pes, to document the activities of the Workshop and produce follow up materials to be published on the VIU website and magazine.

Recipients of the KA171 Erasmus+ grants are not eligible to receive the RED scholarship but may apply to participate as a RED Scholar on a voluntary basis.


Application for RED scholarships for the 2nd Semester 2022-23 are now open.
Students can apply until November 30, 2022, after completing pre-registration using the link available in all the pages of the Globalization Program area of the VIU website, in a white box at the side of the pages.
