  • The applicant’s household resources (usually those of the parents)

How much is the student scholarship in Europe?

The value of the scholarship is defined according to the same calculation method as the Crous scholarship🇧🇷 Therefore, it varies according to the applicant’s family resources and may vary from €1,042 to €5,736 per year (for the academic year 2022-2023).

This sum is paid directly into the beneficiary’s bank account at the beginning of the month, usually from September to June, although it is also possible to receive it during the long holidays.

The value of the bag is calculated according to the steps from 0 bis (for the lowest help) to 7 (for the highest help). Position in these levels is determined by:

  • Spots: depending on the composition of the household and the distance between the place of study and residence, the administration assigns a certain number of points.
  • Resources of applicant’s parents: these are N-2 resources, i.e. 2020 income for a 2022-2023 grant. However, in certain situations, it happens that only the student’s income is taken into account.

Applying for a European scholarship is very simple. Simply:

  • Fill in your student social file like for a classic Crous scholarship application
  • Fill in an application for scholarships to study in a member country of the Council of Europe, a form that you will find in your personal space (here is the form for students of the Academy of Nantes, for example)
  • Prepare supporting documents for your process (identity document, school certificate from the institution attended, proof of residence in the country)
  • Send everything in PDF format via the service, section “EHR tracking” then “Deposit coins into my EHR for 2022/2023🇧🇷
