Bocconi International Award

2020-2021 AY

The Financial Aid - Key Information
The benefit
50% tuition waiver

Bocconi University is committed to making our superior level of higher education available to  outstanding students. International Awards will be made available for first year Graduate applicants for the 2020-2021 academic year based on their academic standing.

The International Award includes a 50% tuition waiver, worth approximately € 6,000 per year.

Applicants to the 5 “international” sessions who are admitted to the first year of a Master of Science program at Bocconi will be taken into consideration for a Bocconi International Award.

Academic profiles considered to be amongst the top applicants 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 and with a separate and more detailed email by the Fees, Funding and Housing Office.

Awarded students will need to follow the procedure indicated in the email they will receive 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.

The scholarship acceptance procedure can be accessed only after completing the enrollment procedure.

A renewal application is not required. The International Award will be automatically renewed for the second year (AY 2021-2022) provided the awardee earns at least 50 credits as of 10 August 2021.

PLEASE NOTE: 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.

Students will automatically lose the award if:

  • 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. Students whose award is revoked will be required to pay in full any tuition and fees installments that may still be due at the date of the revocation, according to the official deadlines defined by the Fees, Funding and Housing Office.
