The scholarship is exempt from income tax (IRPEF).

The scholarship payment is distributed in monthly instalments.

The doctoral scholarship is renewable on an annual basis for the entire duration of the programme on the condition that holders have completed the programme of activities provided from year to year, verified by the Teachers' Board.

The doctoral scholarship holders are exempt from the enrolment fees and the university fees: these students are only required to pay stamp duty and the regional tax for financial aid.

Doctoral scholarships cannot be combined with either research grants or other scholarships assigned for any reason whatsoever, with the exception of those granted by national or foreign institutions to integrate research or study periods abroad

A doctoral candidate who has already been granted a doctoral scholarship, is not eligible to obtain it for a second time.

Scholarships bound to specific research topics are listed below.

Any student who conducts his/her research, training and studies in a foreign university or a foreign research body, will officially be recognized for a 50% increase in the scholarship, under authorization by the Teaching Committee of the PhD Programme.
