School Scholarship: The right way to Apply


COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP. A college scholarship is means-tested assistance. Here are the criteria and fixed amounts.

In order to benefit from the college scholarship, public education students must apply online on the special platform of the special Educonnect platform. The Ministry of Education provides a user manual. Through this portal, it is possible to obtain the tax data necessary to process the request without the need to attach supporting documents.

For private college students, the application must be completed using the Cerfa form 12539 and then sent to the secretariat of the college where the child (or children, if applicable) is enrolled. A photocopy of the tax or non-tax notice and bank details must be attached to the form.

Typically, this file must be sent until mid-October after the start of the school year (end of October for students registered with Cned).

The Ministry of Education provides parents of students with a simulator to calculate what kind of scholarship they can qualify for. Three pieces of information are required: the number of underage or disabled children, the number of adult children living alone, and reference tax income.

The simulator then outputs the number of points awarded corresponding to marital status, the income ceiling that must not be exceeded to receive a scholarship at the beginning of the 2022 school year, the level to which the student belongs, the annual scholarship amount. and for qualifying students, the boarding school’s annual bonus amount.

Any parent of a child enrolled in a public or private college or receiving distance education at the National Center for Distance Education (CNED) at the same level can apply for a college scholarship. This benefit is subject to a means test. In addition, it depends on the regular attendance of the student: in the case of unreasonable cumulative absences of more than fifteen days or repeated, the director may withhold all or part of the amount paid.

The college scholarship scale is set based on the number of children and the resource ceiling (as stated on the tax notice). The 2022-2023 quarterly amount, calculated based on 2021 income and the number of dependent children reported on the 2022 tax notice, is as follows:
