Funding a doctorate

The funding for scholarships to attend doctoral programmes can come from a range of companies and organisations, under agreements stipulated with the University of Milan.

Specific research projects can be funded with scholarships provided by a company or organisation, under a commitment to provide three years of finance to cover:

  • the amount of the scholarship, established year on year by the Board of Directors of the University 
  • the INPS contribution (separate pension and welfare scheme for the self-employed), as envisaged under Art. 2 of Ministerial Decree of 11 September 1998, in line with the current percentage figure
  • the cost of running the doctoral programme, determined each year by the University Board of Directors
  • the additional sum - amounting to no less than 10% of the amount of the scholarship itself - starting from the second year, for research activity in Italy and abroad, suited to the type of doctoral programme
  • the sum - amounting to no less than 50% of the scholarship itself - required for any periods of study abroad to be undertaken by the PhD student
  • the amounts required for any higher costs resulting from the implementation of legislative and regulatory provisions (increase in the scholarship amount and the INPS contribution).
