Scholarships, grants and insurance
isdaT students can apply for scholarships based on the social criteria stipulated by CROUS, the regional center for Student Affairs. This is done by creating their Student Social File (DES) online between January 15 and May 15, before the start of the academic year. As the scholarship is only awarded for one year, it is essential to register each year before May 15th.
A national scale is applied, taking into account the resources and expenses of the family.
The amount of the scholarship varies according to 8 levels which are revised each year by the Ministry of National Education. The scholarship is awarded for 9 months, from October to June. Payment is monthly (payment at the end of the month).
All the necessary information will be provided with the registration form and on the CROUS website.
Supplementary health cover
“Pass Mutuelle” for students
The Occitanie Region deploys throughout the regional territory, in addition to national schemes, specific aid in certain conditions to promote access to healthcare for students: the Pass Mutuelle for students. This aim of the scheme is to encourage students who receive a scholarship and who cannot otherwise benefit from supplementary health cover (Couverture Maladie Universelle Complémentaire, Aide au paiement d’une Complémentaire Santé, company mutual health insurance, or who are entitled to supplementary health insurance from a parent) to subscribe to supplementary health insurance with the Region’s partner mutual insurance organisations.
Support from the Region amounts to a maximum of € 100 per student and per academic year. It is issued, through the intermediary of partner mutual insurance companies, without any advance payment by the student. Eligibility conditions and information can be found on the Occitanie Region website.
