Grants for International Students: Italy to provide equal access for students from poor countries

A new Italian regulation makes it easier for non-EU prospective students to access financial support.

The new regulation on grants provided to students confirms the right of non-EU students to access services and grants that support the right to study on equal footing with Italian students.
Special provisions will apply on how to establish the economic situation of the student. In particular a decree adopted each year lays down the list of poorest countries from which students are most likely to be able to prove their poor economic situation. For students coming from one of these countries, a declaration by the Diplomatic representative that they do not belong to a rich and high-ranked family.
