Each semester scholarships are awarded to talented students to contribute to the cost of living in Venice for a semester, to promote excellence and diversity in the Globalization Program.
Among the students enrolled in the Globalization Program Fall 2019 term, three were selected as winners of the RED (Residency-Excellence-Diversity) Scholarship:
Anna Lena Emmert, BA student at Ludwig Maximilians Universität, Germany
Mayuko Sasamoto, BA student of Liberal Studies at Waseda University, Japan
Natasha Zinos, BA student of Russian Language and Literature at Boston College, USA
A fourth student was given the possibility to join the team without scholarship:
Daniel Schwahn, Master student of Romance Studies at Ludwig Maximilians Universität, Germany.
The four RED scholars are expected to actively contribute in promoting and organizing co-curricular activities such as the Tea2B, informal conversations on key topics that involve students, professors and staff taking place on Mondays at prof. Luca Pes' office.
They will also participate in the Globalization Program Plenary Workshop, that this semester will focus on Democracy in the Information Age.
Their role will be mainly in the editorial team, under the guidance of prof. Pes, to document the activities of the workshop and produce some follow up materials to be published on the VIU website and magazine.
Application for RED scholarships for the next Spring 2020 semester are now open.
Students can apply until November 30, 2019 after completing pre-registration using the link available in all the pages of the Globalization Program area of the VIU website, in a white box at the side of the pages.
