Selection criteria

Applicants will be selected based on their current academic career performance (credits achieved and registered by 01/09/2016, marks obtained, etc).  In case two or more candidates have the same academic score, the possess of an English and/or Italian language certification (depending on the language of the academic program in which applicants are enrolled) will also be taken into consideration; for further information about the accepted certifications, please visit the C.L.A. website. Candidates may be contacted by the International Relations office in order to provide information on their language certifications.

Selection outcomes

At the end of the selection process, two separate lists of standings (one for Engineering, the other for Architecture/Design) for each academic level will be composed with the names of the students who have been awarded a scholarship.

The lists of standings will be affixed to the online Official Register of the Politecnico di Torino and published on this project website and on the Apply@Polito section of the Politecnico website. Publication of the final lists of standings is foreseen for late September 2016.

An e-mail message will be sent to all scholarship recipients and eligible applicants summarizing the terms for the disbursement of the scholarship. This message will be sent to the official e-mail address provided by the Politecnico to each student (s[student number]@studenti.polito.it). NEVERTHELESS, THIS MESSAGE DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFICIAL COMMUNICATION OF THE OUTCOME OF THE SELECTION.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE AFFIXING OF THE LISTS OF STANDINGS TO THE ONLINE OFFICIAL REGISTER OF THE POLITECNICO DI TORINO WILL BE, FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES, THE ONLY OFFICIAL NOTIFICATION OF INCLUSION IN THE LISTS OF SELECTIONS AND, FOR STUDENTS WITH THE APPROPRIATE QUALIFICATIONS, THE ONLY OFFICIAL COMMUNICATION THAT THEY HAVE BEEN AWARDED A SCHOLARSHIP.

Scholarship winners will be summoned to a meeting, where further details about the disbursement will be disclosed and the acceptance of the scholarship will be undersigned. Any absence must be justified beforehand, otherwise selected students will lose any right to receive the scholarship.

We emphasize that the Politecnico di Torino assumes no responsibility for the applicant's failure to view the lists of standings and/or the terms for the acceptance of the scholarships as published on our website and the online Official Register of the Politecnico.

In all the e-mail messages and the correspondence sent to the Politecnico following the awarding of the scholarship, the recipient must clearly specify "Compagnia di San Paolo - Politecnico scholarship".

Amount of the scholarship

  • The gross amount of the Compagnia di San Paolo - Politecnico scholarship is 7.373 Euro. The exact net sum is dependent upon the individual tax conditions of each student.
  • Payment of the scholarship occurs in two instalments. The first instalment is dependent upon the possession of the relevant documentation (residence permit, Italian fiscal code, and bank account in the name of the scholarship recipient).
  • The payment of the second instalment is subject to the enrollment at the Politecnico di Torino for the 2016/17 academic year; students who do not complete the enrollment by November 4th will lose the right to receive the scholarship.

Requirements to maintain the scholarship

  • Given that it is not possible to combine the benefits received from more than one scholarship, students who are assigned another study or mobility grant while receiving the Compagnia di San Paolo - Politecnico scholarship must promptly notify the Politecnico di Torino.
  • Payment of the scholarship will be suspended if the academic performance of the recipient does not meet a satisfactory level.

Notes

  • The scholarship does not include tuition fees or accommodation costs, which are thus totally at the expense of the student. The Politecnico di Torino does not guarantee any type of accommodation for Compagnia di San Paolo - Politecnico scholarship recipients.
