The Regional Authority for the Right to University Education annually endows study grants for which foreign students are also eligible.
Grant receivers have free use of accommodation and canteen services and the right to an annual payment of up to1280 euro, according to the student's income level. The grants are assigned on the criteria of merit and income.
Students are obliged to present documentation that certifies the study title held and the income level and value of property owned by his/her immediate family. The type of documentation required varies according to the student's country of origin.
A declaration must be presented pertaining to the gross income of all family members in the previous year, the possible real estate owned individually at the end of the year, with relative surface areas specified, as well as the personal property held during the same period.
The Settore Assegni office employees provide assistance in compiling the declaration.

Students from non-EU countries present in the list annually drawn up by the Ministry of the University and Scientific and Technological Research
A certificate issued by the Italian Representatives in the country of origin must be presented, that attests that the student does not come from a family of notably high income or upper levels of society. The student's income from these countries is minimally considered.
Students recognised as political or stateless refugees are exempt from presenting declarations issued by Embassies and Consulates. In assessing these students' economic situation the possible income and property held in Italy alone is taken in to account.
