Università Bocconi is committed to promoting inclusion also through the support of students who, despite being economically disadvantaged, wish to have an experience abroad.
Cash grants are assigned within the limits of available resources and until the mobility funds allocated at national and international level are exhausted.
In determining the amount of the grants, the University must also refer to the guidelines set out by each entity allocating international mobility funds.
The amount of the grant takes into account, besides the students’ economic situation:
- Duration of the experience, as attested by the certificate of arrival/departure
In particular, among all participants in international programs (Exchange, CEMS-MIM, Themis, DD Essec and other Joint/Double Degree programs) the "fewer opportunities" group is identified, which includes students awarded the following benefits in the academic year 2022-2023:
- ISU Bocconi scholarship
- 1° fees relief target
- need-based exemptions from 60% to 100% on ordinary Bocconi fees
Students belonging to this group will receive an inclusion support grant (a flat-rate top-up equal to 250 euros per month) in addition to the monthly amounts established per destination.
Moreover, "fewer opportunities" students heading to other destinations (group 4) may receive a cash contribution for their travel costs at the end of the experience, if funds are available.
For the academic year 2023-2024, students not belonging to the "fewer opportunities" category will be considered as described below.
Taking into account the capacity of the international Erasmus+ funding program, received for the academic year 2023-2024, and in compliance with the guidelines provided for by said fund, for this year also students not belonging to the "fewer opportunities" group in mobility towards destinations falling within groups 1, 2 and 3 may be considered for the allocation of available funds.
With reference to students heading to destinations within group 4, it is specified that by virtue of the funds received to date, it will also be possible to support students who, while not falling within the "fewer opportunities" group, have been assigned a need-based benefit (2nd or 3rd fees relief target).
