Bocconi Sport Talent 


In order that the longer duration of studies which characterizes student athletes, due to sporting commitments, does not constitute an economic constraint on access to university studies, Bocconi University makes available to students who have distinguished themselves for a particular sporting merit, total exemptions from the payment of academic contributions for a maximum number of out-of-course years equal to the legal duration of the chosen course of study.

The number of years for which the exemption is available will be proportional to the period of actual competitive activity: for each previous year – concurrent with years of enrollment at the University – of certifiable competitive activity at an athletic club, a Federation, etc., one year of exemption will be offered. The assistance will be applied starting in the 2022/2023 academic year and will not be effective retroactively. Therefore:

  • for students enrolled in a Bachelor of Science, the exemption can only be applied up to the 3rd year "fuori corso"
  • for students enrolled in a Master of Science, the exemption can only be applied up to the 2nd year "fuori corso"
  • for students enrolled in the Integrated Master of Arts, the exemption can only be applied up to the 5th year "fuori corso"

Recipients

Applicants who have been admitted to the first year of one of the following programs for the academic year (2022/2023) of reference:

  • Bachelor of Science
  • Master of Science
  • Integrated Master of Arts

Categories of interest

This category includes high-profile student-athletes who are members of national or foreign sports clubs or associations. These athletes will be able to continue practicing sports for the clubs or associations of membership, connected to the national federations of reference

Support services available

Athletes selected for the Bocconi Sport Talent support program will be entitled to the following benefits:

  • full exemptions (limited to "fuori corso" students, students who have not been able to complete their studies in the time requested) (*)
  • encounters with other athletes who benefit from the same program
  • support service
  • the chance for priority access to the Bocconi University Residence (**)
  • use of services at the “Bocconi Sport Center” (pool, gym, fitness) at special terms and use of a fitness area at the Team Sports Arena with dedicated trainers.

(*) The scholarship must be requested when the student enrolls in Bocconi University but it will be applied later on, at the end of the regular course of studies (i.e. 3 years for a 3-year program) if the student finds that they have not been able to complete their studies on time. The scholarship is, in fact, reserved to students who, because of high-level sporting commitments, which require a considerable amount of effort and time (e.g. training, sport trips, participating in competitions and/or national and international events) are not in the condition to end their studies in the expected amount of years (i.e. 3 years for a 3-year program).

The scholarship is therefore reserved exclusively to students who, having demonstrated their continuous dedication to their sporting activities during the years of the course of their chosen studies (i.e. 3 years for a 3-year program), are in need of additional time to complete their course. In this case, the University will allow the student to continue their studies – without asking for additional tuition and fees – for a maximum of years equal to the ones of their original program (i.e. an additional 3 years – maximum – for a 3-year program).

(**) benefit to be assessed depending on the evolution of the Covid-19 health emergency.
