Dan DeMatteis

Each year, the SPSCA awards up to four scholarships for one month of language study in Perugia, Italy. Each scholarship is worth approximately $1,200. It includes one calendar month of intensive language study at the University for Foreigners (Università per Stranieri) located in the historic heart of Perugia. There is also a stipend that can be used to defray the costs of room and board or transportation.To learn more about the program and the SPSCA go to or come visit our booth in Fisher Pavilion at Festa Italiana at Seattle Center on September 28-29.

The application process is easy. Download the application form from the website and send by email to the SPSCA scholarship chair Cindy Musto at scholarship.spsca.

The application deadline is October. 31, 2019.

If you are one of the lucky recipients, you can generally choose which month you want to travel. SPSCA board members and former scholarship winners will provide suggestions for housing and share their favorite Umbrian restaurants and sightseeing tips with you.

There is no age limit or proficiency level required, though some basic knowledge of Italian is helpful. While in Perugia, you’ll have the chance to improve your language skills, meet students from all over the world and see what it is like to live in one of Italy’s most historic and well-preserved cities.

I hope you’ll take advantage of this incredible opportunity to improve your language skills and live la bella vita.
