Simona Paravani-Mellinghoff

The Cambridge Scholarship for Italian Talent was established by Simona Paravani-Mellinghoff to encourage Italian students to apply to Cambridge.

Simona Paravani-Mellinghoff is a leading investment professional, having held a number of senior positions in prestigious organisations worldwide, and is an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Faculty of Economics at the University of Cambridge. In 2022, the donor was awarded the title of Commander of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic for her commitment to promoting inclusion and social mobility through education and financial literacy.

The Scholarship provides a contribution to the cost of study, to be spent on fees or living costs as the recipient wishes.

Preference will be given to female candidates applying for STEM subjects (Chemistry, Chemical Engineering & Biotechnology, Computer Science, Engineering, Maths, Physics, and related fields).

Scholars are selected by the Trust; no additional application is necessary.
