Student life


Students enrolled at the Ecole nationale supérieure d’Art of Dijon can benefit from numerous grants:

  • Higher education state scholarships allocated by the CROUS according to social criteria; applicants must capture their student’s social dossier on the CROUS Internet site as of January prior to the school year concerned. Scholarships are allocated for nine and a half months and evaluated according to a national scale and two allocation criteria: the distance between the home and the school and the number of children declared on the household income tax form.
  • Aid to merit, an addition to the scholarship depending on social criteria for the most deserving students. It is reserved to students with a future scholarship or with a current scholarship depending on social criteria and who got a “grade A” for their baccalaureate and have enrolled in a higher education establishment. To benefit from this aid to merit, students must apply for a student’s social dossier (DES) on the Crous Internet site.
  • Additional local grants depending on social criteria and allocated by Dijon’s City Hall (Managing Board of Education and Higher Education) under condition of having lived in Dijon for more than 5 years.
  • Erasmus scholarships whose purpose is to foster students’ exchanges with European schools.
  • Higher education local grants allocated by the Burgundy Regional Council either as an addition to Erasmus exchanges or within the scope of exchanges outside Europe.
  • Specific aid annual culture allowance
    Funded by the State, it allows for the allocation of annual or one-off emergency aid to students who are experiencing serious difficulties. Students wishing to benefit from this specific aid must first apply for a grant through the student social file (DSE) on the website If the student does not meet at least one of the conditions imposed by the regulations to benefit from a grant based on social criteria, he/she will be invited by the CROUS social service to fill in a specific aid file and to explain his/her particular situation. An interview with a CROUS social service assistant will then be organised to assess the student’s overall situation. Following this interview, the file will be presented to the CROUS social committee, which will issue an opinion on whether or not the specific aid should be granted and will propose to the CROUS director the amount of aid that may be granted.
  • School grants allocated to students in qualifying years to help them realize their works.
  • Scholarships allocated by the school for travels related to the students’ projects (travels outside the Europe).
