BonelliErede announces the second edition of the Franco Bonelli scholarships
15 February 2018

BonelliErede honours the extraordinary legacy of its founder Franco Bonelli by annually granting two scholarships to law graduates who wish to complete their studies in the subjects addressed by Franco Bonelli in his writings in a country other than their country of origin.

The first scholarship is to attend a master’s course (LLM or similar) of at least eight months at an EU or a US university. The second is to carry out a research programme (PhD or research for a book or an article to publish) of at least six months at an EU or a US university.

Co-Managing Partners Marcello Giustiniani and Stefano Simontacchi commented: “We are intimately tied to the memory of our founder. The two scholarships are a way to remember him and allow the wake of excellence and constant search for improvement he left behind him to continue”.

Applications are open to Italian and EU citizens who obtained a master’s in law (or equivalent qualification) from an Italian or EU university before 31 July 2016 – with a score of at least 105. Candidates should also have adequate knowledge of the language of the country where they intend to study.

The scholarships will be awarded by a commission chaired by Sabino Cassese and comprising Giovanni Domenichini and Piergaetano Marchetti.

If you would like to apply, please send an email to Beatrice Moretti at or write to her at BonelliErede, Via Michele Barozzi, 1 – 20122, Milan. The deadline for applications is 30 April.
