The National University of Distance Education has Social Fund Grants available which provide full or partial tuition fee waivers to eligible students. The grants are aimed primarily to assist students who are unable to meet academic requirements for other grants and scholarships due to socio-economic circumstances and financial hardship.
Applicants must have applied for a scholarship from MECyD or the Basque Government for the current year but have been denied. Applicants must be enrolled at the Open University. Applicants who are beneficiaries of other grants and scholarships are not eligible.
