Financial aid and scholarships

Foreign students who wish to enroll in a bachelor's degree program, master's degree program or research doctorate can compete for public scholarships.

The notice of competition is published by August of each year. In order to apply, students admitted to the first year of their programs at LUISS must have already completed enrollment by paying the first installment of their tuition fee by the deadline set by the Student Office.

A student that fulfills the income requirements set forth in the notice of competition is exempted from the University's tuition fee (the first installment previously paid will be refunded) and may also be awarded a scholarship up to a maximum of €5,100.

The following documentation must be submitted in support of the application. 

  • Students from non-EU countries
    • Certification of the income of all members of the family, issued by the appropriate authorities of the country that the income has been earned in and translated into Italian by the relevant Italian diplomatic authorities there. 
    • Certification of wealth (dwellings, lands, commercial premises, etc.), issued by the appropriate authorities of the country where the assets are located and translated into Italian by the relevant Italian diplomatic authorities there. 
  • Foreign students coming from particularly poor countries
    • A declaration issued by the Italian diplomatic or consular authorities in the country of origin, attesting that the student is not a member of a family known to have a high income and social standing.

In the case of students enrolled at a university in the country of origin that has an agreement with an Italian university, that declaration can be issued also by the foreign university in which the student is enrolled.

  • Students that are stateless or political refugees
    • The official certificate relating to their condition, issued by the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs or the United Nations High Commission - Italian Office. 
    • ISEE (Equivalent Economic Position Indicator) statement, issued by CAF and INPS. 
  • Students coming from EU Member States
    • Self-certification, to be submitted when filling out the application, of the income/wealth situation of the student's household for the previous year. In the event of household members that have income generated in Italy, the student must submit the ISEE (Equivalent Economic Position Indicator) statement, issued by CAF and INPS.

The scholarship application must be resubmitted every year. Starting in the second year of the program, the number of credits awarded will be assessed in addition to the income requirements.

Please note that public scholarships are not compatible with other scholarships that are granted.

The Financial Aid Office (in Italian: Diritto allo Studio) can be contacted by email at diritto.studio@luiss.it for further information and a preliminary assessment of the required documentation.
