Scholarships

Selection criteria

Applicants will be selected based on their previous academic career and on their Curriculum Vitae.

Amount of the scholarship

  • The gross amount of the Alessandria Campus scholarship is 4.000 Euro for the complete period. The exact net sum is dependent upon the individual tax conditions of each student.
  • The amount of the scholarship will not be increased in case the student will need more time to graduate than indicated.

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 grant while receiving the Alessandria Campus 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.
