AID FROM THE CROUS
Find out what the eligibility criteria and application processes are for the main grants and scholarships in higher education, including need-based aid, on the website of the CROUS de Strasbourg, where you will also find information on aid supplements and special aid packages.
Do not hesitate to go see a social worker at the CROUS, who is in the best position to provide you with information about the different types of aid or if you experience financial or personal difficulties.
More useful information can be found under the section "Vos aides financières" (Your financial aid) on the site etudiant.gouv.fr: need-based aid, aid for studying abroad, special aid, student loans guaranteed by the government, etc. You can also get information from the "Direction des études et de la scolarité" (Department of Studies and Tuition) or the "Bureau des bourses / de l'action sociale" (Office of Financial Aid / Social Action) at your school or institution!
The Agoraé is a social and solidarity grocery store, created by students for all students in Strasbourg, located behind the Faculty of Law on the Esplanade campus. You will find groceries at reduced prices, or even food aid for students experiencing difficulties. The Agoraé tries to promote social links and also offers preventive and awareness-raising actions about good eating habits and responsible consumption, as well as cultural activities.
SCHOLARSHIPS FROM THE UNISTRA FONDATION
The University of Strasbourg has set up a scholarship programme with its sponsors to enable young people with financial difficulties who have demonstrated their academic excellence to receive aid for the duration of their studies. These scholarships are thus a supplement to the aid provided by the CROUS on a needs basis.Find out more on the website of the Fondation de l'Université de Strasbourg..
