What is a Study Grant?

The study grant of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, more commonly known as "scholarship (FWB)", is a financial aid allowing a regular student beneficiary to cover, in part, their expenses for a year of studies.


Granting of the scholarship is determined by several criteria(*) and the request of this grant must be renewed each year with the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.
The scholarship organisation requires the student to take a full exam session.
Only the granting of the scholarship confers the scholarship status. If you do not have access to this status due to a scholarship refusal, you cannot claim the other two related benefits that are the registration fee exemption and the "course material" assistance. These are subject to independent requests from the Student Social Service
