'Asia Institute' award for Master's Thesis

Asia Institute aims to encourage research on the Asian continent among students of the Master's and Single-Cycle Master's Degree courses at the University of Bologna by rewarding the best thesis that contributes to an in-depth study and research about Asia.

With the aim of encouraging research and study of the Asian continent from a historical, socio-political and cultural perspective, Asia Institute proposes the first edition of a competition to reward Master's degree theses of particular academic interest focused on the Asian continent for what concerns innovation, media, information and culture.

This year's title is No more “continent of the future”: Asia and the drivers of today's change. We therefore accept Master's degree theses that have Asia and its countries  as its object of investigation, its characteristics within the world of today and the multiple prospects for innovation and change that it offers at a global level in the social, economic, political, technological, cultural and media fields.

The prize consists of a cash grant for a total of 1000 (one thousand) euros and all students who have obtained a Master's Degree from a Course of Studies at the University of Bologna in the period between 1 June 2022 and 31 March 2023 and who have written a thesis in line with the aims and themes presented are eligible. All the details relating to the application and participation are contained in the announcement, which can be downloaded in the contents highlighted on this page.
