Bocconi University strives to advocate for an inclusive, diverse, and accepting community also from the point of view of the percentage of female students.
For this reason, starting from AY 2021-2022, Bocconi University is introducing a special type of Bocconi Graduate Merit Award. These are called "Women Awards", designed to award exceptional and talented female students who are interested in pursuing their studies in the economic and financial field, traditionally led by men.
“Women Awards” aim to redistribute diversity within the Bocconi student body, recognizing academic achievement and the potential of female students interested in continuing their higher education in the area of economics and finance.
The provisions below constitute official publication of the regulations a.y. 2023-2024 of the “Women Awards” benefit for female students enrolled in the first year of the Msc Finance in the a.y. 2023-2024.
INFO FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS THAT WERE ASSIGNED A WOMEN AWARD FOR A.Y. 2023-24
This award will be renewable for the second year of the MSc (AY 2024-2025), provided the same merit requirements foreseen for the renewal of the Bocconi Graduate Merit Award are met (50 credits as of 10 August 2024).
The same regulations about renewal and revocation that are foreseen for Bocconi Graduate Merit Awards apply also to Women Awards.
INFORMATION ARCHIVE A.Y. 2023-24
To assign Women Awards, consisting of a full tuition waiver, the Scholarship Committee will assess the best profiles in terms of academic career and work/study experiences abroad of female students of any citizenship who have applied for admission to the Msc Finance in Bocconi for AY 2023-2024.
The outcome of the Committee evaluation has been communicated to student awardees together with admissions results. Those who wished to enroll with the award first needed to complete the enrollment procedure and then follow the instructions provided via email by the Fees, Funding and Housing Office to formally accept the award.
The benefit for the academic year 2023-2024 has been 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 and will not be able to receive a refund of the first installment paid (advance payment) for 2023-2024 until the reserve is lifted.
