The commission will evaluate the submitted applications, and will select the students that will receive the grant on the basis of the following priorities

  3. other Ph.D. students
  4. bachelor and master students and, among these, according to the average of their exam grades
  5. recent graduates
The selected students will have to confirm their participation in the symposium in 2 days.
After the event, the selected students will have to send a scanned copy of the certificate of attendance to the AI*IA  treasurer Sara Manzoni (by email manzoni@disco.unimib.it) together with their IBAN account number.
Moreover, they have to send the originals of the receipts by mail to the AI*IA accountant
