Study grants and financial aid from the University
University study grants and financial aid are funded through University funds and contributions from the Comillas-ICAI University Foundation, the Fund of Church Grants, the non-autonomous foundation for candidates to the priesthood and other organizations and individuals.
Financial aid and grants for Nursing and Physical Therapy programs are organized by the School of Nursing and Physical Therapy and the Brothers Hospitallers of San Juan de Dios (Bética Province).
The Study Grant Commission will decide on the award of University grants and financial aid according to the funds allocated to this service each academic year.
Students who wish to renew a grant can do so between March 1 and April 22, 2016. Students at Ecclesiastical Faculties and student members of religious or diocesan communities can also renew grants during this period. Incoming students should apply for grants and financial aid during the dates set for submitting their University Application.
Who is eligible for these grants?
University study grants are intended for future Bachelor's Degree students at Comillas.
What do these grants cover?
University study grants consist of a partial reduction of tuition fees for Bachelor's Degree programs.
How long do these grants last?
Grants are awarded for one academic year, with renewal subject to reapplication.
Students whose family income is within the brackets set by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport in their call for grant applications must apply to the Ministry.
- Incoming students should not already have a university degree. Exceptions may be made in special circumstances.
- Students should register for subjects or credits amounting to no less than 60% of the average amount for a regular academic year. Financial aid is not usually awarded for academic years or subjects that are being repeated or for credits above the amount recommended by the authorities managing the corresponding academic year of the degree. The student's academic performance, as assessed by the corresponding academic authority, will be taken into account in all cases.
Students whose net family income is lower than the thresholds established in each call for applications are eligible to apply for study grants and financial aid. If various siblings are studying at the University at the same time, these earnings increase by 15% per sibling, from the third child onward. For more information, see Call for applications
