They have all the cards in order to receive the financial support provided to help them continue their university studies, but do not see a dime. They are the ‘eligible non-winners’, those who are qualified assets, income and credit for being awarded the scholarships remain high and dry because of the scarcity of resources to fund the right to study .

The bag is suitable without an army. Only last year were 35 thousand to be denied the opportunity to have an economic aid, but failed law. The national average is 1 of the excluded suitable for every 5, but as always, even in respect of the right to study there are major differences between North and South.


They consider that the southern region are those in which the socio-economic conditions are worse and right there we would need to invest more in the right to education, the situation is paradoxical. It is the Campanile region in which you record the situation worse. Here not only the number of suitable candidates without bag is very high, but the bags themselves are much more ‘lean’ than elsewhere: 2,493 EUR 3,360 EUR against each representing the national average. In 2013, 15,094 were eligible, but the beneficiaries of the scholarship only 4,252 (28.2 percent).

The lowest rate of candidates who actually receive contributions is recorded at the University of Sannio and amounted to 12.8 per cent, but also the eastern of Naples is difficult to get the bag: make it only 14 percent. Even in the South there are exceptions, such as Basilica ta, which is able to guarantee the bag all the unfit. On the other side, however, there is the bad performance of the Piedmont , which for the scarcity of resources available to leave empty-handed 40 per cent of suitable candidates.

The funds for the right to education are part of the state and in part regional. The differences between one region and another depend mostly on the amount allocated to the local level. The investments of the individual regions, in fact, also influence the distribution of the state fund, which is distributed in proportion to the resources they bring into the field. More funding is the right to education, the State grants more additions to increase the number of scholarships and grants to be distributed.

To make it very cumbersome and inefficient system that should guarantee students the right to education is not, however, only a shortage of funds. The fault is also the constant changes to the law, which often do not come into force for lack of decrees, little of regional interventions coordinated with state and very distracting, in a non-transparent management of funds received and, even, the proliferation of institutions for the right to education (which in some regions are more than one).

For all this they are paying for students who, despite themselves, they often fail to undertake or continue their university studies because of the inability to cope with taxes and other expenses and you see a right denied that, in reality, it is stipulated by our Constitution. This emergency has been reported by the rectors to the new president of the Council Matteo Renzi, in the letter that the CRUI sent him to ask interventions on the most urgent problems of the system. Now you just have to wait for the answers of the new government in this regard.
