Enrolment in the chosen courses:
The scholarship holders will be pre-enrolled in the chosen courses by the Italian Embassy in Canberra. It is advisable to check with the relevant Italian authority (be it the Cultural Institute, Education Office of the Italian Consulate or Italian Embassy) which documents are required for such pre-enrolment.
Please note that the scholarship allowance will be paid every three months, except the 1 and 2 month scholarships in which case the allowance will be paid during those months. In order to receive such payments, the scholarship holder will need to provide official certificates of attendance issued by the relevant institution. Failure to produce such certificates will cause the scholarship to be discontinued.
