If you are an Italian citizen currently working within the humanitarian field, you may be eligible for a scholarship from the Fondazione Marco Besso. This foundation typically grants several scholarships to the IDHA each year. If you would like to be considered for a scholarship, please email a CV and cover letter to the IIHA at miha@fordham.edu and specify that you are seeking a scholarship from the Fondazione Marco Besso. The Fondazione does not accept any direct scholarship requests.


The CIHC is also proud to offer a small number of other scholarships that cover up to fifty percent of the total cost of selected programs. These scholarships do not cover the cost of transportation, nor can they be deferred or transferred to other courses.

Please contact us to see if you are eligible for a potential scholarship.
