University - 11 January 2022

It will be possible to apply until 12 January 2022.

Since a.y 2019/2020 IULM University has set up a fund for the granting of extraordinary pro emergency contributions Covid-19. The fund is aimed at the benefit of students enrolled in the three-year and master's degree courses during the academic year 2020/2021. In view of the prolonged emergency, it has been decided to increase the available fund to 800,000 euros, to broaden the access criteria and to extend the deadline for applying until 15 February 2021. The contribution will be deductible from the third instalment of university fees and contributions for the year 2021/2022.

The Government Bodies of IULM University had set up an emergency economic fund in favour of its students enrolled in the courses of study in the a.y 2021/2022 and who were, following the epidemiological emergency from Covid-19, in serious family financial difficulties.

Part of the fund has already been allocated during the a.y 2019/2020  2020/2021. From January 12, 2022 IULM reopens the terms for requesting new assignments in the 2021/2022 academic year in favour of students who have already benefited from an extraordinary contribution, in case of repeated and motivated economic difficulties which can be traced back to the Covid-19 epidemiological emergency:

  • the loss of a parent;
  • bankruptcy, forced closure of the family business or a drastic and documented drop in turnover in the absence of other income and assets such as to result in a total ISEE of less than € 43,000.00;
  • the dismissal of a parent in the absence of other income and assets such as to constitute a total ISEE of less than € 43,000.00.

A specially constituted Commission will assess the individual applications, which must be sent in writing, stating the reasons and accompanied by the documentation needed to assess the application, no later than 20 January 2022 to [email protected] with the following subject: Request for extraordinary contribution Covid-19.

The amount of any extraordinary contribution shall be determined at the unquestionable discretion of the Committee.

The extraordinary contributions are not compatible with the eligibility for the regional scholarship a.y. 2021/2022.

The allocated contribution will result in the reduction of the third instalment of university fees and contributions of the a.y. 2021/2022.
