Watch out: the scholarships are mainly for French students – with some exceptions – therefore, read carefully the conditions. You can make an appointment with our social workers if you have any question.
If you have limited resources, you might be granted a scholarship based on social criteria to help you paying your studies in higher education. This scholarship comes under the Department for Higher Education and Research or under the Department for Culture and Communication.
WHO HAS ACCESS TO THE SCHOLARSHIP BASED ON SOCIAL CRITERIA?
In order to be eligible for a financial assistance from the Department for Education, Higher Education and Research or from the Department of Culture and Communication, you must be less than 28 on the 1st of September of the university year and take courses that are authorized to welcome scholarship holders. The scholarships are granted depending on three criteria: the income of the tax home (that is the parents or guardians), the number of children on the tax burden of the family and the distance between the university and the student’s home.
According to these elements, a national awarding scale helps to allocate the scholarships to the students. A scholarship simulator is available in order to help you estimating your possibilities to get a scholarship based on social criteria for the 2016-2017 university year.
Fill in every section and start the calculation. Depending on the result, make your scholarship 2016-2017 application on the DSE’s submission server.
THE SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION: STUDENT SOCIAL FILE
The scholarship and/or accommodation application has to be made before to take the final exams or before to choose a future course choice. It is done through the Student Social File (DSE in French) which allows students to pick up to 4 wishes in different regional education authorities. Each student can only present one file even if he or she applies for different universities or asks for several financial aids, whatever the education authority is.
Once the procedure done, an email of confirmation is sent with a link you will have to click on. The file is passed in an email as an attached document. You will have to check it and complete or modify the information if necessary. Afterwards, you must send back the completed and signed file as well as all the required documents to the following address:
CENTRE DE NUMÉRISATION DU CROUS DE ROUEN
