Every year, the Autonomous Province of Bolzano provides scholarships for students attending university institutions in Italy and abroad.
Every autumn students can apply for scholarships. The application is made for the academic year just started, i.e. in autumn 2023 for the academic year 2023/24. The scholarship cannot be applied for retroactively. The application must be renewed each year. The scholarship award criteria may also be changed each year.
(Future) students must meet both formal (e.g. high school leaving diploma) and financial requirements in order to qualify for the scholarship. Students enrolled one year after the first year must also have achieved a certain academic merit.

STUDY GRANT: STEP BY STEP
Step 1: Which members of your family need to complete an EEVE/DURP
Every member of the applicant’s nuclear family will have to complete an EEVE/DURP to calculate the FWL/VSE (economic situation factor). For this purpose, the family situation at the time the FWL is issued is considered.
Basically, the nuclear family is every relative living together with the applicant:
Parents or partners of parents
Other persons under 26 years of age with an income for EEVE/DURP purposes of less than 10,000 euros per year that are studying or living in the same household
Other persons dependent on the persons mentioned
Applicants under 26 years of age who in 2021 had an income for EEVE/DURP purposes of 10,000 euros or more
Applicants aged 26 years or older who in 2021 had an income of 2,840.52 euros or more
Married students form their own nuclear family with their spouse
Students with children living at their expense in the same household
Ask at a local union for further information about the nuclear family.
Step 2: Collecting all the necessary documents
For a complete list of the necessary documents for the EEVE/DURP, see the list on page 14 of the booklet.
Necessary documents for the application for study grants:
Economic situation factor FWL/VSE (plus certificate number and date of issue)
Information about your study course: university, course, year of first enrolment, credits (ECTS/CFU)
Bank account of the applicant: IBAN of the bank, NO Prepaid-cards
Other documents, if required
Step 3: EEVE/DURP and economic situation factor (FWL/VSE)
Every member of the applicant’s nuclear family must complete an EEVE/DURP in order to calculate the economic situation factor of the applicant. You can do the EEVE/DURP for free at every local union office in south Tyrol. Here a List of local unions (Patronate/Steuerbeistandszentren)

INFORMATION ABOUT EEVE/DURP AND FWL/VSE (ECONOMIC SITUATION FACTOR)
The EEVE/DURP ("Single Declaration of Income and Assets") and the FWL/VSE (economic situation factor) form the basis of the calculation.
It is possible to obtain the FWL/VSE-certificate for free at any local union. This requires three steps:
a) Determining the members of the nuclear family
b) Issuing a EEVE/DURP for every member of the nuclear family
c) Calculating the FWL/VSE and obtaining the FWL/VSE-certificate
a) The nuclear family is always defined on the basis of the beneficiary, i.e. the student. For this purpose, the family situation at the time the FWL is issued is considered. Usually, the nuclear family consists of all family members who live in the same household as the student:
The student herself/himself
If the beneficiary is not yet 26 years old, has earned a income for EEVE/DURP purposes of less than 10,000 euros in the previous year, and is studying or living in the same household: her/his parents or one parent and her/his spouse or partner living in the same household
Minor children living in the same household
Other persons under 26 years of age with a income for EEVE/DURP purposes of less than 10,000 euros who are studying or living in a shared household
Other persons dependent on any of the above
Students under 26 years of age with an income for EEVE/DURP purposes of more than €10,000 earned in the previous year can apply alone (without the other family members living in the same household). For students aged 26 and above, the amount decreases to 2,840.51 euros gross. You have to reach the amount corresponding to your age every year to be able to apply alone. In any case, the income of the applicant is included in the calculation of the EEVE/DURP and FWL/VSE.
According to the EEVE/DURP regulations, married students or students with their own children usually form their own family.
Attention! This information is of a general nature! For the determination of the nuclear family one should in any case contact a local union!
b) The EEVE/DURP (Einheitliche Einkommens- und Vermögenserklärung / Dichiarazione Unificata di Reddito e Patrimonio) is a self-declaration about the economic situation of an individual. The EEVE/DURP therefore combines the income and assets of this individual. A separate EEVE must be issued for each individual in a family. The EEVE/DURP declarations that are valid for the study grants are those that have been issued with the income and assets of 2019.
Filling out the EEVE/DURP is free at the local unions. There it is also possible for one member of the family to do the EEVE/DURP for other members.
c) The economic situation factor (FWL/VSE) is a number that is calculated by putting together all the EEVE/DURP declarations of your family members. This number will determine if you can get a scholarship and how high it will be. In order to fill out the application form for the scholarship you will need the economic situation factor, the number of certification of the FWL/VSE and the date of issue. You will find all three on the FWL/VSE-certificate.
Attention: You need to do the EEVE/DURP and calculate the FWL/VSE (economic situation factor).
