Thanks to the cooperation with public and private partners, every year Politecnico di Milano offers a number of merit-based scholarships to the most talented international candidates admitted to a Master of Science program to the 1st or 2nd semester. Students obtaining a scholarship will have to pay only a non-refundable administrative fee of about €160.
All the admitted students with a complete dossier (language certificate included by the deadline) will be automatically considered for the available merit-based scholarships (there is no separate application for scholarships). The Politecnico di Milano operates 3 scholarship schemes, which provide financial support for full-time Non-EU and EU students enrolled in our “Laurea Magistrale” (equivalent to Master of Science) programmes.

2. GOLD Scholarship

The number of Platinum, Gold and Silver scholarships awarded varies from year to year, a small number of Platinum scholarships and a larger number of Gold and Silver scholarships are available.
In addition to the Platinum, Gold and Silver scholarships, every year other kinds of merit-based scholarships offered by external institutions may be available for specific programmes or students’ country of origin.
Scholarships Assignment criteria
The selection criteria are based on the evaluation of your previous education and its match with the prerequisites of our M.Sc. programmes. Obviously, GPA (grade point average) and academic achievements (including the portfolio when requested) are of utmost importance. Last but not least a well-written motivation letter will highly contribute to a positive decision by the Scholarship Awarding Committee.
