Extraordinary Financial Aid

For anyone facing financial distress


Every year, Padova's ESU offers the possibility to participate to a Ranking for the assignment of extraordinary financial aids  for anyone who is in particular and exceptional financial distress.

The aid can be given only once during the student's academic career. It is, furthermore, incompatible with other economical benefits given by other public or private bodies.

The students admitted to the ranking, depending from the course of study, can participate to the assignment for the extraordinary financial aid for more than one year or semester, starting from the year of the first enrolment (unfinished careers are also calculated).

Extraordinary financial aid can be given also to part-time students enrolled to three-year degrees or specialised degrees.
