Facilitated access to university tuition fees for working students

Who is it for and what are the requirements?

Persons subject to international protection (refugee status, subsidiary protection and asylum seekers), temporary protection and special protection under the Employment Agency, or involved in training courses provided by Formatemp dedicated to them, are granted access to the Ebitemp service “Retta universitaria studenti lavoratori” (University tuition fees for working students) with facilitated requirements, providing, in the case of enrolment in a university degree course within its legal duration, an annual contribution towards the cost of university fees.
The benefit is also aimed at workers enrolled in a university training course called “CFU” for the achievement of credits required by Presidential Decree 19/2016 and obtained during bachelor, specialised, and master degree courses or single university courses. Post-graduate courses (specialisation schools, university masters etc.) are excluded.
The applicant must have signed an employment contract or attended a dedicated training course provided by Formatemp pursuant to this agreement (starting from 9 April 2022), during the term of this agreement.
If the person is employed by an employment agency, the contribution will be paid if he/she has had at least one day of a staffing contract during the term of this Agreement (starting from 9 April 2022).
If the person is attending one of the training courses provided by Formatemp for this target group, the grant will be paid if he/she has attended at least one day of the course during the term of this Agreement (starting from 9 April 2022).
The application may be submitted for the 2021/2022 university year and not for previous university years.
Please note that the above requirements must be met between 9 April 2022 and 31 October 2022.

What you can get:

An annual contribution of €200 gross towards the cost of tuition fees.
Payments by direct debit bank transfer or prepaid revolving cards are allowed only under the maximum threshold of €1.500; for higher amounts it is necessary to indicate a bank account in the name of the person under international or temporary protection.
Payments to foreign current accounts outside the SEPA area are not allowed.

What you have to do

The request must be sent within 60 days of payment of the first university instalment in one of the following ways:
• through the My Ebitemp* members area, through which it is possible to monitor the progress of the request and add any missing documentation;
• by sending the forms and complete documentation by registered mail with return receipt to EBITEMP – SOSTEGNO ALL’ ISTRUZIONE AD ACCESSO AGEVOLATO – CORSO VITTORIO EMANUELE II, 269 – 00186 ROMA;
*Please note that the only recognised method of receiving requests received with the support of the Territorial Trade Union offices is through the MyEbitemp platform; registered mail or certified emails are not accepted.
The benefit in question is subject to a ceiling of €5,000,000 (dedicated in total to the entire package of benefits aimed at supporting persons subject to international protection – refugee status, subsidiary protection and asylum seekers – temporary protection and special protection) and has an experimental duration until 31.10.2022.
If the required documentation is missing, Ebitemp will suspend the investigation and send the worker a request for additional documentation, which must be received within 120 calendar days, after which, if no additional documentation is received, the application will be considered waived and therefore rejected.
The deadline for submission of the application, by those who will meet the access requirements by 31.10.2022, is set at 31.12.2022.

If the person under international, temporary or special protection is attending a Formatemp training course dedicated to this specific target group:
