With the amount of almost € 25,000, a dozen new students or students who wish to transfer will have access to a scholarship. The application must be submitted between September 30 and October 2. The students who requested the scholarship in the ordinary call for July will participate directly without doing the process again.

The initial scholarship budget for the 2020-2021 academic year was € 110,000, which were increased in July by € 20,000 as a result of the savings generated by the closure of the facilities due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • Don Bosco: for students who have studied in a Salesian school, this option allows coursing the degree at a public price, with the commitment to perform 200 hours of collaborative and assistance tasks.

Traditionally, the EUSS had made separate calls for each type of scholarship, but due to the current situation, this year it was decided to make a general call to redistribute the budget at the time of granting student aid, depending on their needs.

The situation caused by the health crisis has been reflected in an increase in applications for scholarships: 143 in total, of which 81 for study aid, 53 for collaboration, and 9 Don Bosco.
