New funding for Masters scholarships

The University of York is pleased to announce the continued funding of the ONAOSI Foundation Postgraduate Scholarships at York.

The scholarships were established in 2016 through a generous gift from the ONAOSI Foundation, and it has just been announced that they will be continued for a second year.

The ONAOSI Foundation’s gift of €50,000 will provide support for up to five students with full fees scholarships. From September 2017, students in receipt of a scholarship will study for a one year taught or research Masters programme at the University of York or HYMS.

The ONAOSI Foundation was established to provide aid to the orphans of Italian medical personnel, but has expanded its remit to support students in the fields of science and medical science. The scholarships at York are the first to be offered by ONAOSI in the UK.

Current ONAOSI Scholarship students are studying Biology, Post-Production with Visual Effects, and International Corporate Governance and Commercial Law.

We’re really pleased to be able to continue offering these opportunities to postgraduate students from Italy through the ONAOSI Foundation. These scholarships will make a huge difference, allowing outstanding Italian students to study at York across a range of departments. York was recently ranked as the 28th most international university in the world, and the ONAOSI’s contribution to the diversity of our international student community is much welcomed.”

Simon Willis, Director of Student Recruitment and Admissions

In order to be eligible for the scholarships, students must be normally resident in Italy and be a current beneficiary of the ONAOSI Foundation for their undergraduate study.
