Scholarships and Financial Aid

Every year, the University offers deserving students without means a number of financial benefits that include scholarships, grants for participation in international mobility programmes, graduation awards, loans at special interest rates, and subsidised accommodation and catering.

Merit Project

The Politecnico di Milano, at the request of the student representatives, has allocated part of its tuition fees to a fund supporting equal opportunities and promoting merit (the "merit" project). The merit fund finances the following initiatives:

  • extracurricular educational activities for particularly deserving students (€320,000)
  • extension of merit-based exemptions to first-year master's degree students (about €670,000) - see the Fees
  • integration of Erasmus scholarships (€440,000) - see Erasmus
  • prizes for the best students of each School, conferred on the basis of academic achievements in the first year of the three-year degree (€202,500)
  • scholarships for theses carried out abroad (€290,000) 
  • contributions to international competitions (€30,000) - see How to Apply
  • sport scholarships (€50,000)
