General criteria to assess grant awarding for 1st-year degree students are as follows:
1. Applicants must be pre-enrolled on one of the degree courses at Blanquerna-URL schools.
2. Members ot the family unit shall not have a yearly gross income over €14,000 per family member (sum of the total family income among all its members). Income from fixed capital assets and/or movable assets, as well as patrimonial elements, shall also be considered.
3. Special situations ot the family unit (large family, special large family, single-parent family, diseases, deaths, job insecurity) shall be taken into account, but they will not imply direct and automatic aid awarding.
4. The student's application for public scholarships by the Spanish Ministerio de Educación y Formación Profesional or AGAUR, or scholarships awarded by other autonomous communities shall be considered for the purposes of this aid.
Note: Compliance with these criteria does not guarantee that the grant shall be awarded. The final awarded sum might vary depending on the number and order of submitted applications.
1. Applicants have to fill in the application form (pdf format) that can be collected at the SIOE (Student Guidance and Information Service) or at the Academic Secretariat of the school where they will take the degree course, once they have formalised their pre-enrolment process.
2. Applicants have to submit this application form, duly filled in, to the SIOE or the Academic Secretariat of the school, together with the required documents (as specified below), entering the website https://apps.blq.url.edu/diposit with your user and your password of SCALA.
3. An interview is recommended for all students who request financial assistance, in order to assess the circumstances of each student. An appointment may be made when the application form and documents are submitted. If no interview is requested, the Financial Assistance Service may request further information and, if necessary, contact the student by email.
4. After revising every application, the Financial Aid Committee shall make the decision on what grants will be awarded or not. Grants will only be awarded if the applicant passes all the tests and complies with all entry requirements for their pre-enrolled course and after they formalise their enrolment at one ot the Blanquerna schools (by paying 50% of the annual fee).
5. The Committee's final decision will be sent to applicants by email during October detailing the amount awarded. The acceptance of the scholarship must be submitted and signed by the applicant.
