Regulation – School year 2022 / 2023

The Foundation for Financial Education and Savings (hereinafter referred to as “FEduF”) in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Merit (hereinafter referred to as “Mim”) carries out the “I Fuoriclasse della Scuola” Project (hereinafter referred to as “The Project”).

The Project, which is included in the Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2020 between Mim and FEduF, with the collaboration of ABI, Museo del Risparmio and Confindustria and the support of the Carlo Cattaneo University – LIUC, aims to nurture young talents through the contribution of philanthropic donations from foundations, associations, companies and individual citizens.

The main goal of this project is to value the students of the last three years of high school, who ranked among the first in some individual national competitions within the annual program for the promotion of excellence according to Legislative Decree n. 262 of December 29, 2007.

The Project also intends to involve and raise awareness among students about economics, finance and savings in order to allow young people to acquire the necessary skills for a profitable integration into the business world.

The recipients of the Project are the students of the last three years of secondary schools who ranked among the first in the following individual national competitions included in the Program for the Promotion of the Excellence:

  • Championships: Italian, Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, Chemistry, Natural Sciences, Economics and Finance, Classical Languages and Civilizations, Astronomy, Philosophy, Statistics;
  • Chemistry Games, New Design Contest, Economics Contest, National competition for students of professional institutes and technical institutes.

Starting from the school year 2020/2021, it is possible to assign scholarships to sport champions with high academic performance and to students who ranked among the first in other projects recognized by the Peers Group Mim – FEduf.

The Project provides for the assignment of a scholarship in cash and the participation in a residential Campus on financial education.

The number of winners awarded is based on the donations collected by August 31, 2019 and by the choice of supporters among the different competitions.

The criteria for the assignment of scholarships are determined as follows.

The scholarship is assigned to the students on the basis of what indicated by the supporters in the different sections or categories of the competitions planned for the school year 2022/2023.

If more students tied for first, the scholarship is assigned to the youngest student.

If a scholarship is destined to a female student, the scholarship is assigned to the first female student in the ranking list of the last three years of secondary school.

Students can receive a single scholarship in cash for each school year. In case some students win more than one competition in the school year 2022/2023, we check the ranking of the competition that took place later in time so that another student who made it in this ranking can participate in the Project and receive the scholarship. Additional criteria for the assignment of scholarships can be clarified by the Peers Group mentioned in article 3 of the Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2020 between the Mim and FEduF.

During the school year, MIM commits to:

  • promote the project;
  • communicate to the schools the names of the students who are recipients of the scholarships.

  • assign prizes to the students;
  • process data of students, teachers and all those involved, exclusively for the purposes of the Project and in accordance with the requirements of the EU 2016/679 Regulation.

The names of the students who receive the scholarships are identified by taking into account the choice of supporters and the criteria indicated in the previous articles 2 and 3.

The Directorate General for education systems and the evaluation of the national education system sends the communication to the schools to allow the teachers accompanying minors and the students who are recipients of the scholarships to show their willingness to participate in the Project by filling out the registration form.
