What does the programme consist of?

Percorsi helps you as a student and your family build up funds to cover the expenses associated with your studies and your educational and cultural activities.


What will you be offered?

  • Support for your savings.
  • Greater spending power for your studies.
  • Help with continuing education beyond secondary school.


What are the requirements for joining the programme?

  • Being resident in Turin or in the Metropolitan City of Turin (formerly the province of Turin).
  • Attending the 4th or 5th year of higher secondary school, whether state-run or private and legally recognised (technical institutes, professional institutes, high schools) for those born after 1 January 1994.
  • Current ISEE of 15,000 euros or less.


The non-repayable amounts you receive will be linked to the savings you make throughout the programme, which will last for a maximum of 6 years. The amount set aside every month on a regular basis (from 5 to 50 euros per month) will be quadrupled for expenses related to attend your secondary school, a degree course, a master’s or technical further education courses at Italian or foreign schools and universities. These non-repayable supplements will amount to a maximum of 8,000 euros, which you can use exclusively for expenses related to your studies. The accumulated savings will remain yours and you can use them at the end of the programme.

Training and advice sessions are scheduled throughout the programme to ensure you make the best use of the funds made available.
