EDiSU, the governing body of Collegio Volta, is introducing a new system for rewarding members of the College and external students who will contribute to the teaching of courses and supervisions in the coming academic year or who may offer other forms of support, such library services, to the College community.

The new procedure will enable EDiSU to seek financial support for College teaching directly from the Ministry for Education, Universities and Research (MIUR) and will involve several changes at the College end, namely:  (i) interested will need to submit a formal application on a dedicated form that will be posted on the College before the end of September,  (ii) an official ranking list of all applicants will be published by College and EDiSU and,  (iii) EDiSU will be able, under the new procedure, to make a 'payment in money' to all students involved thus avoiding the problem emerged last year with 'payments in voucher'.

Members of Volta interested in contributing to College teaching or library support should check regularly the News section of the College web pages for additional information. The application form will be available as a downloadfrom the College website  together with instructions for completion and submission. The College hopes to maintain the teaching timetable of 2017/18 nothwithstanding the changes required by the new EDiSU procedure.
