Scholarships and scholarship related increases


1. PhD scholarship

The PhD in Sociology and Methodology of Social Research is a joint programme of the Department of Social and Political Sciences of the University of Milan and the Department of Cultures, Politics and Society of the University of Turin.

Each University issues scholarships that are assigned to students according to their rank order in the selection process.

The University of Milan provides Ph.D. students with scholarships of 16,350 € gross per year.

The University of Turin provides Ph.D. students with scholarships of 17.500 € gross per year.


2. Increase in the scholarship amount for periods of research abroad

Those who accomplish a period of research abroad have the right to a 50% increase in the scholarship for the period spent abroad. This increase is available from the first to the third year, for periods longer than 10 days and up to 12 months. The scholarship increase is granted only on PhD Director (and supervisor) agreement. For the increase to be activated, the student has then to send a formal request to the offices of the University issuing the scholarship.


3. Research budget for the first, second and third year (10%)

Every year, doctoral students may have access to a research budget amounting to up to 10% of the yearly scholarship. The use of the budget is granted only upon Ph.D. Director's (and supervisor's) agreement. Every student has to send a formal request to the Department of the University that issues the scholarship.


Financial aids

1. Teaching activities outside Milan

For teaching activities planned outside Milan, reimbursement for travel, accommodation and food costs may be provided (upon presenting original receipts and tickets) for a maximum established by the NASP GS on the basis of funding available.


2. Travelling and accommodation support programmes

NASP allows for the activation of support programmes concerning expenses for travelling to and accommodation in Milan for national and international students for the first year only. These programmes, however, can be activated only on PhD programme funds availability. NASP actively looks for funds every year. Communication about the activation of the above-mentioned support programmes will be sent as soon as those funds are available.
