SRISA Study Abroad Scholarships
The SRISA Scholarship Program provides an invaluable opportunity for prospective SRISA students to study abroad in Florence. The program is designed to recognize students who have excelled academically, are artistically talented, under-represented, or exhibit a financial need.
The SRISA Scholarships are awarded to a carefully selected group of students who have demonstrated discipline, integrity, tenacity, and a strong academic standing.
Scholarships are available for the Fall and Spring semesters only, with the exception of the Need-Based Scholarship, which is also available during the Summer A term (amount awarded will reflect Summer A tuition). Scholarship applicants must be enrolled directly full-time through SRISA and have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA.

- Full Tuition Merit Scholarships
- Full Tuition Need-Based Work-Study Scholarships
- Partial Tuition Work-Study Scholarships (Merit and Need-Based): $2,400 Award
- Returning Student Scholarships: $2,000 Award (applied to full semester programs only)
Students interested in applying for a scholarship must complete all application requirements and submit them by the deadline. Students will be contacted 30 days after the deadline to be notified of their status.
