A scholarship is a financial aid that aims to help students with their living costs and therefore varies in amount depending on the student’s status:
You are a non-resident student if you live in a town over 80 km from the campus, or if it takes you over 80 minutes to reach the campus. If you are non-resident student you may be entitled to a scholarship of up to EUR 4,580.50 and a free daily meal in the university refectories.
If you are a student with non-resident status not using Venice ESU accommodation facilities you must submit a copy of a legally drawn-up rental contract lasting at least 10 months to the Financial Aid Unit within and no later than 31 October 2018 (or on the 17 December 2018, if you are a student registered for the first time on a Master’s degree programme in the 2018/2019 academic year).
Students participating in programmes of international mobility organised by the University in 2018/2019 who will be living in two different locations in the course of the academic year, reaching a cumulative total of 10 months can submit the second of two tenancy contracts by the 15th of March, 2019.
You must either be a signer or co-signer of the contract, which should be submitted using one of the following procedures:
Failure to submit a rental contract, submission by means other those listed above or after the deadline will automatically lead to your status being reclassified from non-resident to commuting student
If you are staying in ESU accommodation, remember that standard accommodation fee of EUR 1,500.00 will be deducted from your scholarship.
If you are a non-EU student you will automatically be considered as a non-resident student, regardless of the distance from your home to the campus, unless your family is resident in Italy; in any case, in order to acquire non-resident status you will need to be living in paid accommodation in the campus municipality or in one of the municipalities classified as “resident municipalities”, for a period of at least ten months during the academic year 2018/2019.
You are a commuting student if you live in a town lying between 40 and 80 km from the campus, or if it takes you between 40 and 80 minutes to reach the campus or if you are student living over 80 km from campus or taking over 80 minutes to reach it but not living in accommodation in the town where you are studying with a legally-drawn up rental contract. If you are a commuting student you may be entitled to a scholarship of up to EUR 2,459.00 and a free daily meal in the university refectories.
You are a resident student if you live in the town where you are studying. If you are a resident student, you may be entitled to a scholarship of up to EUR 1,955.50 and a free daily meal in the university refectories.
To identify your status you can consult the list of municipalities divided by distance and travel time to the Ca’ Foscari campuses in Venice, Mestre and Treviso.
The arrival points are the Ca’ Foscari main campuses and outlying campuses.
For the sake of simplicity, the departure points correspond more or less to the town halls in the various municipalities, followed by the centre of the various hamlets, neighbourhoods (in the case of cities) and the place of domicile of students.
Calculations are based on the assumption that public transport is used and that the train is the fastest and cheapest method of travel: in the case of places without a train station a combination of bus (average travel times) and rail was used to calculate distances and travel times (bus to the nearest train station followed by train).
If you are a student in Venice, travel times are calculated on the basis of public water-bus lines.
The distance is calculated along the road axis to establish which towns are between 40 and 80 km from Piazzale Roma, Venice, and from the university campuses outside Venice (Mestre - via Torino, Treviso, Oriago di Mira, Belluno).
The distance is also calculated along the rail axis between the Venice Santa Lucia station and the train stations in the various towns.
Road and rail axes are combined in calculating distances to towns that do not have a train station.
This calculation does not take into account the distance between the road and rail arrival points in Venice and the various university campuses.
Rail travel times are calculated on the basis of rail timetables, using the morning and evening times of interregional and regional trains (not Intercity or EuroStar trains); in the case of connections between different rail routes, calculations were based on the average waiting time for the next train (the waiting times are minimal during the time slots considered).
Urban road travel times are based on an average speed of 20 km/h given that travel mainly takes place during the rush hours.
Pay attention: If you cannot use the refectory service because you are participating in the international Erasmus+ programme, the deduction for the refectory service will only be applied for the months in which you are actually staying in Italy, and you will be entitled to a proportionally higher scholarship – a maximum of EUR 5,180.50 for non-resident students, and EUR 2,859.00 for commuting students, respectively.
You can apply for a scholarship by 1 October 2018, provided you are a student:
If you are enrolled in a Master’s degree programme in the 2018/2019 academic year for the first time you can apply by 17 December 2018.
Remember that scholarships are awarded for the first time that you complete each of the levels of a study programme.
If you are enrolled in inter-university study programmes you will be required to submit your scholarship request to the university that is the administrative office for your study programme and to which you pay your university fees.
If you are a part-time student you are entitled to request and obtain a scholarship using the same procedures and deadlines as other students enrolled in first- and second-cycle degree courses: the requirements for requesting scholarships and scholarships amounts are proportionally reduced.
Remember that scholarships are awarded for 7 years to part-time students enrolled in first-cycle degree programmes and for 5 years to part-time students enrolled in second-cycle degree programmes .
N.B. If you matriculated in a study programme with “full-time” status and opted for “part-time” status during the course of your university career, in calculating the number of years and merit requirements, each academic year attended with “full-time” status will count as two “part-time” years.
To participate in the award of scholarships you must have an economic condition (ISEE) of less than EUR 23,253.00 and an asset situation (ISPE) of less than EUR 35,824.56. These conditions are defined on the basis of your ISEE (Equivalent Economic Status Indicator).
If you matriculated for the first time in the first year of your first- or second-cycle degree programme, your scholarship will be assigned to you on the basis of income only. However, in order to comply with scholarship requirements, you will need to obtain 20 credits during the first year of your study programme. If you have not obtained at least 20 credits by 10 August 2019 you will not receive the second installment of your scholarship; if you have not obtained 20 credits by the 30 November 2019, you will be required to pay back the first instalment of your scholarship and pay the university fees from which you were originally exempted.
If you are enrolled in subsequent years of a first- or second-cycle degree programme, you will be assessed on the basis of a merit indicator calculated according to your mean grade and the number of credits you have obtained by 10 August 2018. The mean benchmark grade is the mean grade obtained by a hypothetical student taking the same exams as you during the same academic years.
If you fail to obtain the necessary credits to be eligible for a scholarship, you can opt to use your bonus; the bonus changes its value – in terms of credits – depending on the year in which you use it and can be used on a once-only basis. Only the credits necessary to meet merit requirements are used, and the remaining credits can be used in subsequent years. For example, if you ask for a bonus to meet scholarship requirements for your second academic year and you only use 3 ECTS out of a total of 5 ECTS available for the second academic year, you will only be able to use the remaining 2 ECTS in subsequent years.
Pay attention: The calculation of merit requirements of students enrolled in first- or second-cycle degree programmes, the following ECTS are not taken into account:
Enrolment in another study programme following withdrawal from your studies is considered a first enrolment and previous years of enrolment will not be taken into consideration (from the date of your matriculation), provided you did not receive a scholarship during your previous enrolment.
In order to apply for a scholarship you must carry out all of the following operations by 11:59 PM of 1 October 2018:
Enrolling students belonging to the following categories are required to pay EUR 169.00 in regional tax and EUR 16.00 in stamp duty only:
The 17 December 2018 at 11.59pm deadline for requesting benefits for the academic year 2018/2019 is exclusively for students registering for the first time on a Master’s degree programme at the University in the 2018/2019 academic year.

NB: if you submit an application for a scholarship you will be required to activate the Ca’ Foscari CartaConto at one of the University’s partner banks within 30 days of being awarded a scholarship. Failure to do so will cause you to forfeit your right to receive the amounts due.
Disbursement of the first instalment will be made to all beneficiaries by 31 December 2018.
Disbursement of the second instalment will take place by 30 June 2019 (or by 30 September 2019 for students enrolled in the first year of a Bachelor's or Master's degree programme, provided they have obtained 20 credits by 10 August 2019).
Scholarship and eligibility will be cancelled in the following cases:
The cancellation of your scholarship means you will be required to repay the monetary amount of your scholarship and the amount corresponding to the value of refectory and/or accommodation services provided by the Venice ESU and used during the course of the year.
If your scholarship or eligibility are cancelled you will also be required to pay the tuition fees established by the University administrative regulations currently in force.
