DSU regional scholarships

Education incentive Programme - Diritto allo Studio

Regional scholarships consisting of a sum of money and free access to refectory services are related to DSU benefits (Education incentive Programme - Diritto allo studio).

Financed by the Lombardy government and the Ministry for Education, regional scholarships are guaranteed to all eligible applicants thanks to extra funds provided by the University.

The scholarships are awarded yearly, via competition, to university students meeting certain merit, income and regular attendance requirements, provided they are regularly enrolled in degree or postgraduate programmes.

Students enrolled in first level master programmes, medical schools of specialisationand doctoral students - who already enjoy a scholarship or research grant - are not eligible to apply.

Applicants must:

  • not hold scholarships from other institutions for the same year of their programme
  • not be enrolled in a part-time programme
  • not be enrolled as repeating students on a programme level they have already attended;
  • not be enrolled on the first year of a degree programme or single-cycle Master's degree programme after graduating from high-school with a grade lower than 70/100.

Students holding DSU regional scholarships automatically participate in the awarding of merit scholarships of up € 6.000, financed by the university.

The scholarship is paid on the “Carta La Statale”, the University personal badge for access to University services. In order to receive the payments, the Carta La Statale must be activated ad a prepaid card Flash Up Studio La Statale.
