Roberto Rocca Fellowships

Founded in 2005 to promote the study of engineering and the applied sciences, the Roberto Rocca Education Program is sponsored by the Tenaris, Ternium and Techint companies. The Program is named in honor of Roberto Rocca, the late Chairman of the Techint Group.

Award details

Fellowships are awarded for a period of two years and may be used for tuition, fees and living expenses. The award amount will depend on the candidate’s financial need but in general candidates are encouraged to seek complementary sources of funding.  There are approximately 12-15 Scholarships available every year.  

Who can apply?

The Fellowships are open to citizens of Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Romania and Venezuela who will enter a Ph.D. program in the next year or who are already undertaking a Ph.D. at a university outside their own country.

Fellowships are granted to students who will or are pursuing a Ph.D. in Materials Science, Mechanical, Metallurgical and Petroleum Engineering and whose research offers potential benefits to the steel industry.

How to apply

Applications for the Fellowships must be submitted via the on-line Fellowship application on the Roberto Rocca Education Program’s website.
