Insularity assistance
Money is available to offset the impacts of living on an island (commonly termed “double” and “triple insularity”) for residents enrolled in higher, technical and continuing education as well as art programmes which are held off the island during the 2018-2019 school year.

From a total provision of €38,000, grants of €150 are available to students attending classes on Eivissa or who are enrolled in distance learning programmes at other universities, while higher ed students in institutions outside the Pityuses can request grants of €450.

Money for higher education
Another assistance package is aimed at helping local students bolster their educational curriculum and, more generally, ensuring equal access to the right to education and access to officially recognised higher education programmes across Spain.

The Council will distribute €12,500 in ten €1,250 grants.

Funding for text books
Money has also been set aside to help students purchase textbooks during the 2018-2019 school year. This assistance can be requested not only by primary and secondary schools on the island with textbook reuse programmes, but by pupils enrolled in such programmes, too. Other eligible candidates are members of large or single-parent families residing on Formentera.

The Council has assigned €45,000 to textbook assistance. Schools will get €50 for every child in primary and €70 for pupils in secondary education. For large and single-parent families, the aid covers 100 per cent of costs.
