Laziodisco (ex Laziodisu)
The Lazio Region, through Laziodisco, continues in its commitment to make the right to education in our Region more effective and inclusive. Here below the Call for scholarships, lodging grants, Erasmus grants and graduation prizes for the academic year 2019/2020. During the year, on the website www.laziodisco.it we will publish other Calls for the assignment of book vouchers, for rent contributions, transport subsidies and other useful contributions to guarantee the right to study for commuting students. This is a concrete commitment by Laziodisco that, also thanks to resources from the European Social Fund, has made it possible to award 20,000 scholarships, eliminating the despicable occurrence of non-winning suitable students. Not to mention the allocation of more than 2,000 beds, 780 rental contributions and “minor” benefits to thousands of students. As you may know, the Lazio Region, for the last four years has broadened the concept of “right to study” by organising all its interventions in favour of the young population around the construction of a route that ideally accompanies the students from their access to university to the entry into the labour market.”
