Scholarships and scholarship related increases (as provided by Italian law)
1. PH.D. scholarship
The Italian law provides Ph.D. students with a scholarship of about 13,500 € gross per year.
2. Increase of the scholarship amount for periods of research abroad
Those who accomplish a period of research abroad have the right to a 50% increase of the scholarship for the period spent abroad. This increase is available from first to third year, for periods longer than 10 days and up to 18 months. The scholarship increase is granted only on Ph.D. Director (or supervisor) agreement. For the increase to be activated, the student has then to send a formal request to the offices of the University granting the scholarship.
3. Research budget for second and third year (10%)
Doctoral Students attending the second and third year may have access to a research budget amounting up to 10% of the yearly scholarship. The use of the budget is granted only on Ph.D. Director (or supervisor) agreement. For this purpose, the student has then to send a formal request to the Department of the University that issues the scholarship.
1. Research budget for first year students
Every Ph.D. programme may provide a research budget for students attending the first year. There is no given amount for this budget, which is set according to the Ph.D. programme director.
2. Teaching activities outside Milan
For Teaching Activities planned outside Milan, a reimbursement for travel, accommodation and food costs is provided (upon presenting original receipts and tickets) for a maximum of 30 euros each day (GSSPS standard).
3. Travelling and accommodation support programmes
The University of Milan allows for the activation of support programmes concerning expenses for travelling to and accommodation in Milan for national and international students for the first year only. These programmes, however, can be actually activated only on Ph.D. programme funds availability. NASP and GSSPS actively look for funds every year. Communication about the activation of the above mentioned support programmes will be sent as soon as those funds are available. More information will be available on NASP web site.
