Grants Available for Croatian Students in Trieste

Lauren Simmonds

All foreign students studying in Trieste, and there are very many of them, have the right to access grants.

Croatian students are plentiful in the Italian city, and the possibility for them to get their hands on quite large amounts of cash is a more than welcome knock at their doors.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 17th of September, 2018, the amount foreign students could be entitled to ranges from 2,300 to as much as 5,100 euros per year. The parameter for its calculation revolves around the amount of income the students’ family earns, and since that of the families of Croatian students tends to be considerably smaller than that of the families of Italian students, the grants for students from the Republic of Croatia are considerably higher.

An important obligation is also a valid rental contract in the city. The control of these contracts is extremel rigorous, and very unpleasant punishments can follow cases of fraud. Otherwise, grants for Croatian student generally exceed as much as 4,000 euros, and this is a very good amount, one Rijeka native told Novi list.

”How could it not be when the price of student life in Trieste are very correct. For example, apartments in the city centre are more expensive, the rent of something smaller for two students is about 500 euro, but by leaving towards the outskirts, this amount decreases. Therefore, in order to be a resident of Trieste for a year, 2,000 to 2,500 euro should normally be allocated. Which is equal to the smallest of the grants.” explained the student from Rijeka.

”And its not just that. Students spend 600 euro per year on food,” he continued, adding that a city bus ticket costs 27 euro per month, therefore it is clear that the scholarship, especially if it’s of a higher amount, covers almost all the costs a student has in Trieste.

”Basic life here stands at about 3,500 euro. Therefore, there’s still room for costs like home-made dinners, a trip back to Rijeka, and a few trips to Via Torino,” concluded the student in conversation with Novi list.
