The Scuola Normale Superiore PhD School
All PhD programmes are open to both Italian citizens and students from outside Italy. They offer unique conditions for scientific growth. All students admitted to our PhD programmes receive full financial support. This includes tuition, fees, and a cost-of-living stipend. Support is provided to students who remain in good academic standing and make satisfactory progress towards their PhD degree. All students will be assigned further funding for their research activity and travel. Each PhD course offers scholarships reserved to students who graduated in non-Italian universities. Applications are invited from candidates irrespective of their citizenship who:
- will have completed an Italian laurea magistrale or equivalent degree from a non-Italian university within October 31, 2016
- were born after October 31, 1986
Admissions are based on candidates’ academic work and interviews.
