Subsidies for students with special needs

The University of Bari Aldo Moro has set up an "extraordinary expense” mechanism called "Subsidies for students with special needs", which is aimed at giving an extra subsidy to students who are in conditions of severe economic hardship or who have a disability that could prevent them from pursuing their studies.

The circumstances qualifying students for a grant include:

  • those students whose family has been or is already financially disadvantaged or whose financial situation has worsened due to redundancy, lay-offs, or job loss of one or more family members;
  • separation or divorce of parents, or the death of one or both parents, or responsibilities related to the custody of young children;

  • illness or such causes which prevent a student from achieving the academic merit required to be entitled to an ADiSU (Agency for the Right to University Study) scholarship;

  • illness of other members of the family leading to loss of income and considerable outlay of expenses;

  • other reasons not covered by the above (insufficient income, debt, bankruptcy, etc.) which will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Factors giving rise to the grounds for the subsidy request must have occurred no more than one year before the date of submission of the request.

Students may submit an application at any time which will be considered by a Commission Board on a random basis on the following dates: 28 February, 30 June and 31 October of each year.

The grant may be awarded only once during each academic year and may not be combined with other funds transferred in any way (ADiSU grants - University grants - Part-time collaboration etc.).

Those who have not already benefitted from the subsidy in a given academic year will generally take precedence over those who have the following year.

The granting of aid is subject to the scrutiny of a special regulation.


Performance-related prizes

Students who pass all their examinations (by September 30 of each academic year, including proficiency testing, language laboratory work, internships, seminars, workshops, etc.) of the statutory Department curriculum for the years prior to enrolment, who are not behind with their examinations, have not repeated a year or re-registered, and who have an average mark of not less than 29/30, are eligible for the prize (upon presentation of an application, to be submitted by October 31 of each year to the General Secretary) in the form of a prize of 260 euro, exclusively to be used for the purchase of books.
