The school Convitto Nazionale Paolo Diacono in Cividale is offering scholarships to study for one semester or one year in Friuli. 20 scholarships are being offered to descendants of Friuli Venezia Giulia. Ten scholarships are being offered to students from other parts of the world (not of FVG descent). Applicants should be between 14 and 18 years of age and should know some Italian.
The Convitto will pay room and board, laundry, school fees, books, services of a doctor, cultural initiatives in FVG, and recreation fees.
Families are responsible for the costs of travel, health insurance, and other minor expenses.
The deadline date for applications is March 31, 2016.

This may be an excellent learning opportunity for young people who have completed high school in Canada and wish to take a "leap year" before pursuing post secondary education.
