For example, not having obtained a degree of equal or higher level than that of the studies for which the scholarship is requested. In addition, it is necessary to enroll for 60 credits the first year and pass a percentage of the subjects that varies according to the branch of knowledge for subsequent courses. For the 2023/24 academic year, an average scholarship of 3,130 euros is estimated for university students.

The first covers the cost of credits (first enrollment), an amount of up to 1,700 euros based on family income, up to 2,500 euros for change of residence and 50 to 125 euros for academic excellence. The second, comes from the money left over from the budget and is distributed among the students based on the average grade of the file and the family per capita income.
