Having a low income is a barrier to offering your children studies, sometimes long, or to succeeding when you cannot count on your family at all. Aid and allowances exist to get by.
The higher education scholarship
A scholarship is granted to students under the age of 28 who are facing material difficulties that do not allow them to pursue higher studies.
Its maintenance is subject to conditions of progression in studies, attendance at classes, and attendance at exams. The grant holder status allows you to be exempt from registration fees in public institutions and the student and campus life contribution (CVEC).
- the overall gross income (RBG) of the family (for the 2020-2021 academic year, these are those of 2018);
- the number of children counted as dependents (4 points of charge for each brother and sister registered in the superior, 2 points for the others);
- the distance between the family home and the establishment in which the student is registered (1 charging point for a distance between 30 and 249 km, 2 points beyond).
- The scholarshipslab is paid in 10 monthly installments, from September to June, on the 5th of each month, from October (the payment of the September monthly payment is made at the end of August if all the procedures have been done before August 25). For some students (orphans, wards of the Nation, refugees …), its payment can be maintained during the summer holidays.
It is possible to apply for a scholarship at any time, but its granting is not retroactive. The scholarship right is open from the month following that of the submission of the complete file.
