Grants - General information

In order to meet the real needs of students, guaranteeing equity in the allocation of social benefits, we promote a social action that favors access to higher education and increases the success in its frequency.

The grant is an annual monetary benefit for sharing the expenses with the attendance of a course or the completion of a compulsory internship, awarded by the State, non-repayable, whenever the student´s household does not have an adequate minimum level of financial resources.

The grant is awarded for a full school year, except in some cases.

The conditions for awarding a grant are defined in the legislation currently in force, namely in the Regulation for the Allocation of Grants to Higher Education Students.

For more information you should contact the SAS (Social Services) or GAS (Social Office) of the Higher Education Institution you attend.
