302 students have benefited from the Territorial Higher Education Scholarship, over the year 2016 / 2017
The Executive Council meeting on 5 July 2017 validated the co-financing of the European Social Fund (ESF) requested by the Education Department of the Human Development Division under the territorial scholarship scheme for higher education for the academic year 2016- 2017.
The total cost of the action is 601 744,87 €. This amount includes the staff costs of staff assigned to the fellowship service. This is an ESF contribution up to 85% 511 483,14 €. The Collectivity intervenes at the level of 15% or 12 561,24 €. However, it prefinances the entire scheme pending repayment by the ESF.
388 applications filed, of which 302 files were deemed eligible (ie 210 women and 92 men). 269 students are enrolled in Bachelor or Bac + 2, 20 students in Master 1 and 13 students in Master 2.
The objective of the territorial fellowship scheme set up by the Collectivité is to accompany young Saint Martins who are to leave the territory in the pursuit and resumption of their post-baccalaureate studies. Territorial higher education scholarships are a mobility aid for students.
Six types of scholarships are offered to Saint Martin students:
- A social criteria scholarship
-A scholarship for Sciences-Po students
-A scholarship for students in Master 2
-A PhD Fellowship
-An incentive scholarship
- A scholarship for students abroad capped at 2500 €.
Starting with the 2017-2018 academic year, this regulation will be reformed in order to take account of the adaptations required by the dematerialized management of the scheme and the co-financing of the ESF.
