Bocconi Undergraduate Merit Awards
|Bocconi Undergraduate Merit Award — Key informations|
|Tuition and fees||100% waiver|
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. Merit Awards will be made available to first-year Undergraduate applicants for the 2022-2023 academic year based on their academic standing.
International students applying for admission during the Early, Winter or Spring Sessions will be taken into consideration for merit-based financial aid.
The Merit Award includes a full tuition and fees waiver, worth up to approximately € 12,000 per year.
The provisions below constitute official publication of the regulations a.y. 2022-2023 of the “Bocconi Undergraduate Merit Award” benefit for students enrolled in the first year of a BSc programme in the a.y. 2022-2023.
1. Eligible students
Academic profiles considered to be amongst the top applicants will be considered for merit-based financial aid based on the admissions application submitted to Bocconi University. A separate application is not required. The 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 Undergraduate School and the Dean for International Affairs, whose decisions about numbers, amounts and recipients are final and cannot be appealed.
The assignment of an award will be communicated to awarded students together with admission results.
Soon after the publication of admission results, awarded students will receive a separate and more detailed email by the Fees, Funding and Housing Office. In order to accept the scholarship, they will need to follow the instructions indicated in the email and complete the online scholarship acceptance procedure by the enrollment deadline. The scholarship acceptance procedure can be accessed only after completing the enrollment procedure.
It is not allowed to give up the Bocconi Merit Award in favor of other kinds of financial aid offered by Bocconi (including the ISU Bocconi Scholarship).
As previously mentioned, the Bocconi Merit 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 2022) the Bocconi Merit Award in a named scholarship. In order to facilitate possible contacts with the donors, awarded students will be required to upload 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 2022-2023 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 2022-2023. For this reason, students who in the academic year 2022-2023 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 2022-2023 and will not be able to receive a refund of the first installment paid (advance payment) for 2022-2023 until the reserve is lifted.
The Merit 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;
— merit requirements:
• the second year (AY 2023-2024) provided the awardee earns at least 49 credits as of 10 August 2023;
• the third year (AY 2024-2025) provided the awardee earns at least 95 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 Merit Award can be renewed for the entire legal duration of the regular course of study. The Merit 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 Merit 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. 2022-2023 concerning the renewal of the “Bocconi Undergraduate Merit Award” benefit for assignees in the a.y. 2022-2023.
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 Undergraduate Merit 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);
• 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. Students whose award is revoked will be required to pay any tuition and fees installments that may still be due for the ordinary fees target at the date of the revocation, according to the official deadlines defined by the Fees, Funding and Housing Office.
The provisions above constitute official publication of the regulations a.y. 2022-2023 concerning the revocation of the “Bocconi Undergraduate Merit Award” benefit for assignees in the a.y. 2022-2023.
