Italian: Teodoro Raffaele Diaco Memorial Grant

Application Deadline: March 8, 2017

Open to all Harvard undergraduates interested in summer study in Italy. The Italian section of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures has received a generous gift from the Diaco family, honoring the memory of Teodoro Raffaele Diaco, to support Harvard College undergraduates who wish to conduct summer study in Italy, in Italian. Since Mr. Diaco was from Calabria, his family has stipulated that preference be given to support Harvard students studying at the De Rada Institute in Calabria, Italy, though a number of grants have been awarded to students engaged in Italian language study elsewhere in Italy. The grant monies are awarded based on financial need (primary) and merit. Winner(s) will be asked to write a brief letter to the Diaco family describing their experience in Italy.

Please apply through CARAT, Harvard's common application process.  Also, notify Dr. DiFabio that you are applying: edifabio@fas.harvard.edu.
