Conditions for applying for CROUS grants

Many initiatives have been put in place to help students from countries in crisis to settle in France. Students with refugee status in France and students who are beneficiaries of subsidiary protection can apply for CROUS grants and other financial support. Asylum seekers cannot benefit from these grants.

Grants based on social criteria

Students with refugee status in France and students benefiting from subsidiary protection who are under 35 years old can apply for grants managed by the CROUS.

To benefit from these grants, you must:
Applications for grants and/or accommodation are made through the Student Social File (Dossier social étudiant - DSE). Students with refugee status in France or benefiting from subsidiary protection can obtain a grant for 12 months, according to the scale of grants on social criteria, i.e. a level 6 or 7 depending on their situation, which corresponds to a grant of 488.90 to 567.90 euros per month.
