Please submit your grant application forms from the start of the 2021-2022 academic year to the Regional Center for Student Affairs (Crous) of the local education authority where you are studying and in accordance with the applicable terms at the French Ministry of Higher Education (Rennes Crous for students already here).
The means-tested grant is awarded to students in material hardship. It represents assistance in addition to support provided by the family. It cannot replace the requirement that parents must continue to provide child maintenance – even once their offspring have reached adulthood – while the latter are unable to provide for themselves.
The grants are awarded to:
- French students
- students from a European Union member state who meet one of the following criteria:
- have worked in France on a full- or part-time basis
- have one parent (father, mother or legal guardian) who has earned an income in France
- can justify being in France on a continuous basis for at least one year on September 1.
- foreign students benefiting from refugee or stateless person status, as recognized by the French Office for the Protection of Refugees and Stateless Persons (OFPRA)
- foreign students who have been residing in France for at least 2 years and whose tax household (father, mother, legal guardian) has therefore been situated in France for at least 2 years.
There is an exception for foreign students on the condition that they have lived and have had a fiscal household in France for at least two years.
How does it work?
The grant amount is determined pursuant to a national scale subject to the student regularly attending classes, attending exams and making progress. Age-, qualification- and nationality-related criteria are also applied. To determine whether you are eligible for a grant and the level considered, the criteria are studied and support points awarded depending on the family’s income, number of dependent children and distance from the place of study.
To find out whether you are eligible, you can run a simulation on the CROUS grant simulator.

You will be able to confirm your right to receive a grant by fully registering at ENSTA Bretagne (Aurion personal space completed, student services fee [CVEC] proof of payment uploaded).
Should you receive a conditional approval from the Crous, you will need to upload this to your Aurion personal space to validate your DSE.
