Financial Resources

Financial Aid

If you are currently receiving, or eligible to receive, aid at your home institution, LdM will work with you and your home institution so that you may access and use financial aid for your program at LdM. Please meet with the financial aid office at your home institution as soon as possible to discuss using financial aid for your LdM program, as there are particular procedures to follow and there may be some limitations.

In addition, please inform LdM Academic Relations + Student Services (LdM, Inc.) of your intent to use financial aid and complete all required forms by the appropriate deadlines. Doing so may enable you to defer certain payment deadlines.

La Dolce Vita Italian Language Grant

For the 2021-2022 Academic Year, LdM is pleased to award the La Dolce Vita grant to all students enrolled in an Italian language course for the Fall 2021 or Spring 2022 semester programs. The grant ($300 US Transferable Credits; 250 euro All Other Applicants) will be automatically awarded according to the student’s official, final registration.

Institutional Billing Requests / Arrangements

If your home institution prefers to be invoiced and pay on your behalf, please notify LdM Academic Relations + Student Services (LdM, Inc.). LdM will coordinate with your home institution to confirm the terms of the billing arrangement. Please note that you may still be required to confirm your enrollment by submitting the Initial Program Payment and Housing Deposit/Advance, depending on the billing arrangement between LdM and your home institution.

Other Resources

LdM recommends that you meet first with your study abroad and financial aid advisors at your home institution, as they will have knowledge of specific grants and scholarships for which you may be eligible. Additionally, they will be involved in coordinating the transfer of aid and scholarships toward your LdM program.

You may also find it productive to explore additional and alternate funding options. The online resources below may be helpful in your independent research.
