The scholarship fund was set up in memory of a Sicilian student and the son of an IALCA member, Giulio Adelfio, to extend study opportunities to students who may not have the financial means to go abroad.
“The aim of the scholarship is to provide a student who deserves, but has not enough funds to attend a course abroad”
The recipient of the ‘Guilio Adelfio’ scholarship is a student from Palermo in Sicily, Ferdinando, who is participating in a two week long intensive English course at LAL Torbay.
The funding for accommodation and travel expenses has been provided by IALCA, with support from LAL, covering the student’s tuition.
“The aim of the scholarship is to provide a student who deserves, but has not enough funds, to attend a course abroad,” said Gianluigi Rago, from education agency, Eurocultura, and spokesperson for IALCA.

He told The PIE News: “We thought it would be good to provide a scholarship to a student of the region where Giulio lived.”
Ferdinando started his course at LAL Torbay this week.
Rago said that the organisation aims to offer the scholarship annually.
“We hope that other educators will be interested to cooperate,” he said.
