Crous student grant 2023-2024: an increasing amount, payment dates

STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP 2023-2024. Students whose families do not benefit from financial largesse can benefit, each month, from a scholarship. Its amount has been revised upwards. Here's how to benefit from it.

Each year, they make nearly 730,000 to benefit from it: the student grant is a precious financial source for young people who follow higher education, once they have passed high school. But often, this takes place far from the family home, thus entailing a significant budget to meet their needs: housing, food, travel, paying school fees and many other expenses. Thus, this aid paid by the State under conditions of family income reduces part of the student's monthly costs, without taking on the full cost.

For the year 2023-2024, the State has revalued student grants. Each month, beneficiaries will receive 37 euros more. The increase being fixed and not proportional according to the steps, it is therefore much greater for the small scholarships received compared to the higher ones.

In 2023-2024, the annual amount of the student grant was therefore increased for all levels. It can be collected during the 10 months of the academic year but also for 12 months, including summer holidays, under certain conditions. Here is what beneficiaries can receive each month, depending on their level:

Scholarship students also benefit from certain advantages: exemption from university registration fees, exemption from CVEC (the student life and campus contribution) and priority for obtaining Crous student accommodation.

To be eligible for the student grant, you must have French nationality, be under the age of 28 on September 1 of the academic year and follow a course that can accommodate scholarship students. To benefit from it beyond the age of 28, you must continue your studies. If the Commission for the Rights and Autonomy of Persons with Disabilities (CDAPH) recognizes that you are disabled, then no age condition is applied. The scholarship is awarded subject to family resources. Ceilings not to be exceeded are thus determined.

For the 2023-2024 academic year, the 2022 tax notice relating to 2021 income is taken into account. In addition to income, the number of dependent children and the distance from the place of study are taken into account. Load points are thus set and determine the resource ceiling not to be exceeded.

The resource caps based on the number of charging points, for the 2023-2024 academic year, have been revealed:
