Increase the grant to stay abroad

The amount of the grant is increased by 50% during periods spent abroad. The increase is proportional to the number of days spent abroad. Each period cannot last less than 15 days continuously, and the increase can be obtained for 12 months almost (18 months for doctorates in convention and co-supervised PhDs).
To obtain the increase of the grant the PhD student must:

  • Before departure, obtain formal authorization for the stay abroad from the coordinator of the doctoral course issued on the basis of the resolution of the board of teachers for the stay abroad and forward it to the “Direzione Servizi per la didattica e gli studenti – Unità Borse di dottorato, contratti specializzandi e attività contabili”;
  • at the end of the stay, submit to the “Direzione Servizi per la didattica e gli studenti – Unità Borse di dottorato, contratti specializzandi e attività contabili” the "MAG" form indicating the period of the PhD student stay at the foreign institution itself duly completed and signed by the PhD student and the Course Coordinator and accompanied by a certificate in original issued on letterhead by the head of the hosting institution confirming the period of stay abroad.

In case of longer stays, interim payments in correspondence of periods already passed are possible (normally not less than 30 days) using for each period the intermediate MAG form and the intermediate certificate from the hosting institution. The Increase is paid on the 30th of each month (together with the payment of the monthly instalment of the grant) if the documentation is received before the 15th of the same month; otherwise it is postponed to the following month. In August and December, the deadline for submitting documentation is usually the 1st day of the month.

In the case the scholarship is funded by an external organization, it is a necessary condition for such payments that the Funder has paid beforehand to the University the amounts due for the stay abroad.

The documentation related to the request for increase of the grant can be sent by opening a "ticket" through the virtual desk "Sportello virtuale" and attaching a single PDF file.
