The American Fund



1 million dollars in 2 years. We set an ambitious goal, to come together as a community to fund scholarships for Bocconi students. The socioeconomic background of new generations of bright students and future leaders will not stop us from attracting and supporting the most talented students. Talent should never be wasted.


The American Fund is committed to making a Bocconi education accessible to all deserving and talented students, regardless of their financial needs. Imagine how big an impact 1 million dollars will have. Imagine how many students we can help by working together for this common goal.


All donations will ease the cost of tuition fees for undergraduate and graduate students.


By making a contribution to this fund you will help pave the way for the next generation of Bocconi students.  Many young people choose our University because of the tradition of proven excellence, but most importantly, because of its strong values. Does this ring a bell?


In order to carry on this legacy we need to guarantee there will be others following in your footsteps. By donating today, you will widen the network of future Alumni and be part of a powerful pact among generations.




“It takes a community to nurture talent, conduct research, find new paths, allow ideas to circulate and change not only lives, but the world. In a functioning community, diversity is cultural wealth and never impoverishment. The University is called upon to develop and transmit new knowledge, always keeping in mind the role of social elevator that must be central.”


Rector Francesco Billari, Inauguration of the academic year 2023-2024.
