Graduate Scholarships

In my capacity as President of the Community of Saint-Martin, I congratulate the students who helped their parents have completed their application for Superior scholarships and handed over the documents to the Colleges' Awards Service on time.

I know that at the beginning of the school year, some of our young people bravely embarked on a training process that will allow them - in the long term - to encourage their integration into the world of work; And I always support and support these decisions.

The Territorial Council has chosen to grant scholarships of varying amounts, depending on the resources of the households and the type of studies initiated; But also to respond to exceptional demands. Co-financed at 85% by the European Social Fund and cumulative with State aid, the award of this grant meets European criteria, including the timely submission of all documents Documentary evidence.

For the 2014-2015 academic year, the balance will be paid to all students who have provided the necessary parts. Nevertheless, 16% of the applicants have not yet completed their file. However, I would like to congratulate the students and the parents who have taken the necessary steps to file their completed files on time.

The final installments will be mandated this week to all students whose records are in good standing. The latter will receive the balance of the scholarship (40%) which has been granted to them, and I am pleased that this sum can help them in their student journey. I know that the departments have fallen behind a number of cases and are ordered to settle all the pending files.

For the 2015-2016 academic year, let's remember that the deadline for filing files is the 15 October 2015. It should also be remembered that only 10% of files are complete to date; They will be treated as a matter of priority; The 90% still did not complete their file were relaunched by e-mail. I invite the students to make diligence to complete their file so that a favorable opinion is issued by the executive board, because this file falls under a strict European regulation.

I wish a good academic year to all Saint-Martin students and I maintain my commitment to Youth which remains at the center of our public policies.

Aline Hanson,

President of the Territorial Council of Saint-Martin.
