The Cardinal Bea Centre for Judaic Studies is pleased to announce scholarships for students who will register to the 2-year Postgraduate Degree Program in “Judaism and Christian-Jewish Relations” for the Academic Year 2018-2019. Each scholarship amounts to 9.000,00 Euros and is given for one Academic Year (two semesters), renewable for a second Academic Year.*

Taking its name and inspiration from the far-seeing vision of the Jesuit Augustin Bea, the principal promoter of Vatican II’s Declaration Nostra Aetate, the Cardinal Bea Centre is dedicated to encourage the understanding of Judaism and the exploration of Jewish-Christian relations, in particular the development of a Christian Theology that takes into account its Jewish roots. Further information about the Centre can be found at: .

The 2-year Postgraduate Degree Program at the Cardinal Bea Centre includes courses in the areas of Judaism and Jewish-Christian relations, as well as interdisciplinary courses in Jewish-Christian History and Culture using the resources of the Pontifical Gregorian University, the Pontifical Biblical Institute and the Pontifical Oriental Institute. Scholarship holders will receive library privileges and other services granted by the three institutions.


Applicants, Italian or from abroad, have to be maximum thirty years old; admission requires a Bachelor's degree and at least a passive knowledge of the Italian language (Italian language courses will be held at the Gregorian University before the beginning of the Academic Year).


Applicants are requested to send to the following documents:

to the scholarship;

b)  A Curriculum Vitae, giving details of education and language skills and any information the applicant considers relevant;

c)  A copy of an identity document;

d)  Academic Transcripts obtained during previous studies;
