Rui Foundation gives international students the opportunity to develop their talents while living in Italy, both by attending a significant university experience and by getting prepared for future professional opportunities.

That’s why Rui Foundation provides various financial aids to help those who are admitted in its Halls of Residence: subsidies are custom-tailored and can even cover 100% of the annual fee.

Financial aids for all the students

The first financial instrument is a very special discount for every international student coming to live at Castelbarco in Milan: the annual fee – from September 1st to July 31st – is reduced up to 60%, depending on your geographical origin, so that it goes from a minimum of 8.200€ to a maximum of 10.400€ and is balanced to the real months of stay.

GranTalento: discount for talented students

All the admitted students can apply for GRANTALENTO, a scholarship reserved to the best students. It is assigned by the Management Team according to the results of the admission tests.

This aid amounts up to 1.000€ on the annual fee already discounted as previously described.

YOUR FREE YEAR: competition for first-year residents

All the best first-year students of undergraduate or master’s degree programs can take part to the competition for a free year at Castelbarco. This subsidy is awarded among all our halls’ first-year students and the winners’ names will be made public on two dates:


Agreements with Politecnico di Milano

Rui Foundation and Politecnico di Milano give the possibility to access spots with a facilitated fee for Engineering and Architecture. The spots are assigned considering the results of the admission tests both at university and at the residence.
The facilitation is renewable and amounts to 1000 €.
