Bocconi University is committed to making our superior level of higher education available to outstanding students. For the provision of these Awards, Bocconi University commits its own resources and generous donations from private donors, Alumni, individuals and foundations. Awards provide recipients with valuable financial support, ensuring students can enjoy the benefits of a top-quality academic experience regardless of their financial situation. Bocconi International Awards will be made available to first-year Graduate applicants for the 2022-2023 academic year based on their academic standing.
The International Award includes a 50% tuition waiver, worth approximately € 7,000 per year.
The provisions below constitute official publication of the regulations a.y. 2023-2024 of the “Bocconi International Award Graduate” benefit for students enrolled in the first year of a MSc programme in the a.y. 2023-2024.
INFO FOR UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS THAT WERE ASSIGNED A BOCCONI INTERNATIONAL AWARD IN A.Y. 2023-24
The Bocconi International Award will be automatically renewed for the entire legal duration of the regular course of study if the following requirements are met:
—enrollment requirements: completion of the enrollment in each academic year within the deadlines foreseen by Academic Services;
• the second year (AY 2024-2025) provided the awardee earns at least 50 credits as of 10 August 2024.
Any changes in the number of credits, which may derive from exceptional measures, will be communicated through the publication on the website.
Please note that the Bocconi International Award can be renewed for the entire legal duration of the regular course of study. The Bocconi International Award cannot be renewed for fuori corso year/s.
The renewal of the award is also subject to the payment of tuition and fees at Bocconi. For this reason, students enrolled in a Double/Joint Degree that, based on agreements between participating universities, offers a full tuition waiver at Bocconi and/or scholarships that cover tuition and fees to be paid to the partnered university will not be allowed to renew the award for the academic year in which they are exempted from the payment of tuition and fees at Bocconi University.
Please note that bonus credits ARE NOT applicable to the Bocconi International Award.
If the merit requirements are not met, the Merit Award will be revoked. Once the Award is revoked, it cannot be restored. The provisions above constitute official publication of the regulations a.y. 2023-2024 concerning the renewal of the “Graduate Bocconi International Award” benefit for assignees in the a.y. 2023-2024.
The award will be revoked in the following situations:
• award of an equal or larger benefit in Bocconi for the following academic years; it is specified in this regard that in case the student should subsequently lose the major benefit, the Bocconi Graduate International Award cannot be reinstated;
• verifications carried out by the Fees, Funding and Housing Office reveal false declarations made by the student for the assignment of the award: the revocation shall take effect starting from the moment in which the illicit behavior took place and shall entail the full payment of due tuition and fees starting from the academic year in which the student benefited from the waiver following false declarations (articles 71 and 75 of Italian D.P.R. 445/2000);
• they receive disciplinary sanctions imposed by Bocconi University: disciplinary sanctions imposed by Bocconi University will result in a revocation of the benefit starting from the day the disciplinary sanction is imposed.

INFORMATION ARCHIVE A.Y. 2023-24
Academic profiles considered to be amongst the top applicants in the "International" sessions will be considered for an International Award based on the admission's application submitted to Bocconi University. A separate application will not be required. The Bocconi International Award evaluation will primarily be based on the candidate’s academic achievement. In addition to academic achievement, the complete dossier provided to the Admissions office will be evaluated. The Selection of awardees will be carried out by a Committee, nominated by the Rector, including the Dean of the Graduate School and the Dean for International Affairs, whose decisions about numbers, amounts and recipients is final and unquestionable. The number of awards to applicants will not be equally divided amongst the different rounds. The majority of awards will be allocated in the first relevant rounds: the final percentage of awarding for each round is at the discretion of the Committee.
The assignment of an award will be communicated to awarded students together with admission results.
Awarded students needed to follow the procedure indicated in the email they received by the Fees, Funding and Housing Office soon after the publication of admission results and therefore complete the online scholarship acceptance procedure by the enrollment deadline.
As previously mentioned, the Bocconi International Award is also supported by donor companies, Alumni, individuals and foundations who sometimes wish to identify a single deserving student and convert (generally by the end of September 2023) the Bocconi International Award in a named scholarship. In order to facilitate possible contacts with the donors, awarded students will be required to upload an updated version of their curriculum vitae, that might be shared with the Fundraising Office, in the dedicated upload space of the application.
The benefit for the academic year 2023-2024 will be included in the student's financial situation, which can be viewed at the Punto Blu (> administrative area> Fees, Funding and Housing) ONLY after verification by the Fees, Funding and Housing Office of the regular enrollment for the academic year 2023-2024. For this reason, students who in the academic year 2023-2024 will be "registered with reserve" (or have enrollment subject to reserve) will not be able to view in the system the benefit assigned for the academic year 2023-2024 until the reserve is lifted.
