How to obtain a grant to study in Spain

How to obtain a grant to study in Spain
As a foreign student, you are entitled to apply for certain kinds of grants to study in Spain. Here we give you information on some of the programmes that may be of interest to you.

When seeking a grant to study in Spain, remember that there are a wide variety of institutions that offer financial assistance for studying. 
  
Some of these are reserved for foreigners residing legally in Spain (this is the case of most of the grants awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport: http://www.mecd.gob.es/servicios-al-ciudadano-mecd/catalogo-servicios/becas-ayudas-subvenciones/para-estudiar/universidad.html
 In any event, remember always to check the requirements for each one). 
  
A good option if you're planning to come and study in Spain is to look into the MAEC-AECID grants for foreigners offered by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (a part of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation). 
  
These are awarded annually and are generally aimed at postgraduate students. The following link contains information on these grants and on others offered by this organisation. 
  


Things to remember 

The financial conditions offered may include a monthly stipend, in addition to accommodation in a university residence belonging to the MAEC-AECID Student Residence Foundation. 
  
These grants are aimed at foreign citizens over the age of 18 with higher university degrees (and in some programmes, at final year university students), with a distinguished record in particular activities. 
  
Interested candidates should be no older than 35 on the date they start the course. 
You can find more information by writing to the following
 e-mail address: becasmae@aecid.es

Other grant programmes
In addition to the MAEC-AECID, remember that there are more grant programmes offered by other public institutions and universities, as well as by private institutions that have bilateral agreements between Spain and other countries. 
  
Here are just a few: 


Carolina Foundation Grant Training Programme 
These are also awarded on an annual basis, and are designed to encourage further study by university graduates, and the specialisation and continued recycling of postgraduates, teachers, researchers, artists and professionals from Latin America. You can apply online for the grant that interests you: 
  


Santander grants 
You can find all the grants offered by this institution at the following link: 
  

Grant from the Latin-American Postgraduate University Association (AUIP) 
  
This association offers various programmes such as the Movilidad entre Universidades Andaluzas y Latinoamericanas (Mobility between Andalusian and Latin-American Universities) and the Movilidad Académica entre Instituciones Asociadas a la AUIP (Academic Mobility between Institutions associated to the AUIP). You'll find all the information at the following link: 

"Reina Sofía" grants 
These are aimed at Spanish emigrants whose spouses and children live abroad and wish to pursue university studies in Spain, and do not have the financial resources. To find out the schedule for each particular grant award, go to:
