A study abroad program is a great opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students. Coming in contact with another culture, and especially one as rich in art and history like the one we have in Italy, is a unique experience. It widens the horizons of any of the students that come to our programs, and in many cases it can also permanently change their studies or their career path. Please visit our Testimonials page to witness the lasting effect of our study abroad programs on our students.

Every year RILA receives more requests for scholarships than those we can actually provide. Every year we have to turn away a number of academically strong students for lack of funds. Please donate to contribute to the creation of new scholarships. Any amount, big or small, can make a difference.
