Leonardo da Vinci Program
The Leonardo Da Vinci program fosters cooperation between universities and businesses, promoting professional training and the use of new technologies. This program offers graduates of the University of Palermo the opportunity to carry out a training period at a company based in an U.E. country.
Leonardo Da Vinci is a program funded by the European Union which has, among others, the objective of fostering the development of university / business cooperation in the field of professional training, with particular reference to the use of new technologies. This program provides for the payment of a financial contribution to cover part of the expenses incurred by recent graduates who complete an internship in companies or organizations located in other Member States of the European Union (U.E.) or the European Economic Area (S.E.E.).
It should be kept in mind that the Leonardo da Vinci program aims to "develop the quality, innovation and European dimension of systems and practices of vocational training, through transnational cooperation". The Program finances mobility actions within this framework, further supplemented by the priorities established in the call for proposals.
Scholarships and Incentives
The University of Palermo conducts actions aimed at ensuring deserving students the possibility of accessing the highest levels of education and university.
In particular, the Regional Body for the Right to University Study (ERSU) provides scholarships that are designed to provide students with a monetary benefit, both as a contribution to the expenses related to the activity of student, and by way of award for the commitment shown during the university career. The services that ERSU provides are awarded through a public competition; it is thus possible to obtain scholarships, accommodation in university residences, contributions for trips abroad, integrations for European Union programs and other services.
