Registration is open (until May 15, 2022) to create or renew your student social file for the academic year 2022/2023.

Make sure you are eligible for a scholarship before you start the process. It is necessary :

  • be old up to 28 years September 1 of the academic year for the first scholarship application. There is no age limit for recognized students with disabilities.

    Take full-time study in a course that is eligible for a scholarship.

    have a French nationality or the nationality of a Member State of the European Union (or a State forming part of the European Economic Area). For international students, you must have a valid residence permit, have resided in France for at least two years and be part of a tax household (father, mother or legal guardian) established in France.

    The aid is granted according to three criteria: the income of the tax household, the number of children in the family for tax purposes and the distance from the place of study.


    To perform a simulation:

  • L ‘tax return 2021 on family income in 2020.

    The number of your brothers and sisters to your parents’ tax burden

    The distance between your home and the educational institution planned for your studies.
