Study in Sicily is the project dedicated to the students of the Mediterranean area to enhance the collaboration between the Sicily Region and the Mediterranean countries and to enable:

  • An international path going from school education to higher education and/or between different levels of higher education;
  • The participation of economically disadvantaged people through the allocation of targeted grants;
  • The involvement of international students in the sectors of Sicilian excellence (agriculture, oenology, architecture, cultural heritage, naval and engineering sectors, etc.)

Study in Sicily is a project of the Sicily Region, in collaboration with the highest institutions of the project’s target countries. The direct management is entrusted to INDIRE, the national institute for documentation, innovation, and educational research, in Italy. Transparency, inclusion, participation, and non-discrimination are the guiding principles of the project.
