French School Grants for 2011/12
Tuesday 02 August 2011
If you have children of school age in France, then you may be able to entitled to one or more school grants.
While all of these grants are means tested, the basic grant, called Allocation Rentrée Scolaire (ARS), has generous income thresholds.
There are also other specific grants for attendance at French secondary and upper secondary school, although they are not particularly generous.
As well as the main grants distributed on a national basis there are also local grants and loans that are distributed by the schools and by the local councils.
