This sum of money is issued in two instalments. The amount of the scholarship varies depending on the economic conditions and social conditions onsite, commuting and offsite students. For example, during academic year 2017/2018 student scholarships range from a minimum of € 1,188, for “onsite” students coming from the highest income band, to a maximum of € 5,139 for “offsite” students from the lowest income bracket.
This grant can be applied for by students who fulfil the requirements for scholarships travelling abroad within International Mobility Programmes (EU and extra-EU). The grant is issued in a single instalment for a single exchange relating to the study course followed. The integration is approximately € 550 per month (deducted from the sum of any other contributions received by the student in relation to the same exchange) and covers the period of stay abroad for a minimum of 2 months up to a maximum of 10 months.
The Degree Award is a contribution of € 1,000 reserved for any students winning scholarships who graduate in a Master of Science programme within the terms indicated by the Call.
The Politecnico gives offsite students the chance to request, as well as the scholarship, accommodation in one of the campuses in Milan or in the other sites of the University. For further information and details, please visit www.residenze.polimi.it.
Applications can be made by all students enrolled in a laurea, laurea magistrale, single-cycle study programme and doctoral programme for research and specializing course.
ATTENTION: students may apply even before registration or enrolment; however the application presented will only be valid upon registration or enrolment within the terms set by the academic calendar.
Students must complete the form that can be downloaded from the online services at "Subsidies and Agreements -> Financial aid benefits application submission" within the deadline set by the call.
To complete the application, students must click the link "Close the application and print receipt".
Once closed, the application can no longer be modified. At the end of the procedure, a summary sheet will be sent to the student’s university email address or to the address given by the student when registering.
Economic requirements are identified on the basis of the Equivalent Financial Situation Indicator (ISEE) used for university financial aid and on the basis of the Equivalent Asset Situation Indicator (ISPE).
Students not resident in Italy, with their family residing abroad with income and assets abroad (or in Italy and abroad), they must request a substitutive indicator of the ISEE and ISPE value for "university financial aid" called "ISEEU parificato". This indicator can be issued only by the CAAFs affiliated to Politecnico di Milano.
Attention: in the academic year 2017/2018, the ISEE limit (ISEEU), within which participation in the call can be made, is € 23.000, and the ISPE limit (ISPEU) is € 50.000.
For further information, please read Article 3 of the Call and check the ISEE page.
ATTENTION: students enrolling in laurea or single cycle laurea magistrale study programmes must first pass the admission test without Additional Educational Obligations (OFA).
