"We want to help right the inequalities and disparities between local students and those in the rest of the Balearics and Spain", explained Susana Labrador, Councillor of Education. "This is also about lending a hand to local students who pursue higher education off the island and helping the local schools and families who need it most to buy needed books and materials".

The €38,000 allocated to these grants is divided into:

- Aid to students who study on Eivissa or at distance learning universities (€150).
- Aid to students who study outside the Pine Islands (€500).
- Aid to students who study music or dance, elementary or professional, off the island, provided these studies are not available on Formentera (€100).
