The Scientific institution of the Italian Republic "Centro per la salvaguardia dei Colibri" is offering a Scholarship, inclusive round trip, house in Italy and financial aid to students who want an opportunity to specialize in Animal-keeping with Hummingbirds (Colibri) and other exotic birds. You will be involved in vital research associated with reproduction and breeding, feeding and artificial hand-feeding.

Offer conditions:
1. A paid round trip to Italy (from a country of the European Community).

2. Study Visa for people who are in the European Community but have a nationality of countries outside the European Community.

3. A house near Udine in Northern Italy, shared with colleagues. It is also likely you will have to share a bedroom. All charges for the house are paid for by the Institution. The journey from the house to the Institution is 5km, you can go by bus but most students prefer to cycle. Each month, an extra €12.50 is given to cover the cost of transport.
