University Loan
By Merit

Scuola Italiana Design students can count on financial support designed by Intesa Sanpaolo to enable them to expand their skills.

“Per Merito”
is a loan that any student residing in Italy can obtain on the sole condition of being in good standing with their chosen course of study and requires no collateral.

“By Merit”
makes it possible to meet tuition fees, the purchase of educational materials, housing expenses, and anything else necessary to get through one’s course of study with peace of mind.

At the end of the studies, a 24-month “bridge period” is activated, during which the student will receive no more disbursements but will not yet have to repay anything.

Repayment takes place over a maximum period of 30 years; in case of early repayment there are no additional costs.

The rate is fixed and defined at the time of underwriting.

All interest is paid back by Intesa Sanpaolo to the
Fund for Impact
, the fund created for groups with difficulties in accessing credit and education.

For contract terms and conditions see the Information Sheets available at the Branch and on the bank’s website. The granting of loans is subject to the bank’s approval.
