The Manzoni Scholarship Program is established by the Marco Polo – The Italian School of Sydney, and aims to encourage and recognise students in their pursuit of excellence in Italian language learning.
The Manzoni Scholarship Program is intended to provide students with the financial support to further their education in learning Italian as well as reward achievement and effort.
The Scholarship program honours Alessandro Manzoni (1785-1873), an Italian writer and poet. His most famous literary work “I Promessi Sposi” (The Betrothed), published in 1827 remains a fundamental milestone in the development of the modern Italian language.
Students who receive scholarships will have demonstrated exemplary character and will share the values of our school community and passion for Italian language and culture. These students will exhibit qualities such as integrity, leadership, initiative and personal responsibility in their study of Italian.
The Scholarships entitle the holder to the full or part remission of tuition fees for one calendar year of studies at the school. Scholarships do not cover any costs associated with textbooks, excursions or event fees.
