The Giorgio Cini Foundation, or just Cini Foundation, is a cultural foundation founded on 20 April 1951 in memory of Giorgio Cini, an Italian entrepreneur who died in August 1949. The Foundation is the earliest example in Italy of a private organization whose principal aims included humanistic studies at a time when collective interest was focused on economics, science, and technology.

The Fondazione Giorgio Cini is an internationally recognized cultural institution which continues to draw inspiration from its original vocation and, at the same time, plays a leading role as a center for studies and a venue for meetings and debate on current issues. Its initial projects were focused on solving some of the urgent problems afflicting Italy and Venice in the post-war period.

Application Deadline: The scholarship applications must be sent by 31st August 2022.
