A household allowance of up to 300 EUR per month is paid to Fellows with a partner if the partner lives with them in Florence and on condition that the partner's income is less than 2,000 EUR per month. The sum of income and allowance can not exceed 2,000 EUR per month (i.e. if the income is more than 1,700 EUR, the allowance will be paid only to top up to 2,000 EUR).
There is a dependants allowance of 200 EUR per month for each dependent child.
Fellows are entitled to these allowances if they are not receiving any similar allowance from another source, and on presentation of relevant documents (marriage certificate or a document that proves that you are living together in Florence, birth certificates).
A school or university certificate is required for dependent children in full-time education and over the age of 18.
There is no provision for maternity or paternity leave. However, we are committed to instituting some provision for maternity leave in the near future.
