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

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

Students enrolled in first level master programmes, medical schools of specialisation and 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 hold degrees, obtained in Italy, in programmes of the same or higher level of the one for which they're requesting the scholarship.

Students holding 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 as a prepaid card Flash Up Studio La Statale.
