House of the Aviator - Viale dell'Università, 20, Rome


The Rome Chapter of AFCEA International has for many years decided to fund scholarships for representatives of the Armed Forces within the framework of Level II Master's degrees provided by leading universities, in line with the objectives of promoting the STEM disciplines, which are fundamental in the Association's fields of interest and consistent with the founding principles expressed in its Statute.

The effort began in 2012 with three scholarships, for Army, Navy and Air Force, continuing annually without interruption until today, with the Master's Degree Level II in "Engineering and International Space Law in Communication, Navigation and Satellite Sensing Systems" provided by the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Rome "Tor Vergata."

Subsequently, in the 2019/2020 Academic Year, this effort was strengthened with the awarding of scholarships for the three Armed Forces within the framework of the Level II Master's Program in "Optics and Quantum Information" organized by the Department of Basic and Applied Sciences for Engineering of "Sapienza", University of Rome. Despite the additional difficulty due to the spread of the COVID19 pandemic, results were always and still of the highest level as evidenced by the grades obtained by Master's students.

In order to give evidence and recognition to the effort of the attending officers contextually to the fulfillment of their service assignments, the Chapter decided to organize an event for the presentation of the theses carried out in the last academic years, representative of the two Master's degrees.
