Extraordinary Grants

Extraordinary grants are benefits that can be applied for by students who find themselves in difficulties caused by serious events that have affected their ability to continue studying. For example:

  • serious economic problems due to the premature death, unemployment, laying off, mobility, bankruptcy, etc. of a family member;
  • if you or a family member has developed a serious illness, has had an accident of any kind, or needs rehabilitation;
  • natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, etc.

Precedence will be given to events that occurred during the two years preceding application.
