Ermenegildo Zegna Founder's Scholarship

One of Fondazione Zegna most important projects, the Ermenegildo Zegna Founder's Scholarship is a programme aimed to give continuity to the Zegna family’s sense of social responsibility through a commitment to donating €25 million over 25 years. Since its inception in 2014, the Scholarship has awarded hundreds of exceptionally talented Italian university graduates the funds needed to enable them to pursue postgraduate studies or research abroad at leading academic global institutions.

The Ermenegildo Zegna Founder's Scholarship gives recipients the opportunity to acquire valuable know-how and experience abroad that can be brought back to Italy, thereby contributing to the country's future development. The initiative aims not only to allow scholars to deepen their knowledge in their chosen fields, but also to have experiences that will help them take on leadership roles in the promotion of cultural and social progress, fostering a better future for the next generation.
