The Queensland Department of Education and the Consulate of Italy, in Brisbane, are proud to support the StuditaliA Prize—an initiative to promote excellence in Italian-language studies in Queensland schools and reward the high achievement of Year 12 students of Italian.
In its 28th year, the prize provides students with the opportunity to travel to Italy to enhance their language proficiency and deepen their knowledge of Italy's society and culture by being actively engaged in new environments.

- The number of student prizes awarded in any year depend on the donations received and the number and quality of the applications received from students.
- The program is open to Year 12 Queensland (state or non-state) high school students of Italian language.

- Students must have parent/guardian consent to submit an application.
