The different grants offered by EASE reward the efforts of students who have displayed an outstanding capacity for work and talent, with 50% of their enrolment fees being refunded.
Applications for EAE grants are submitted after enrolment, during the first term of the academic year, and a decision is made on the application at the end of the first semester. The terms and conditions of the calls for applications are sent by email to all enrolled students.
In addition, EAE gives awards and accolades to reward the merits of the winners with different titles and benefits.

To be eligible, applicants must have set up a company in the same year as they are applying for the grant.
The criteria evaluated when awarding the grant are the profitability, innovation and scalability of the business idea, as well as the entrepreneur’s curriculum and the GPA on their grade report (or equivalent).

We strive to increase the presence of women in executive roles and foster gender equality in the business world. Over 40% of our students are women, many of whom are professionals who have to combine their studies with their professional and personal lives.
We want to reward their effort with this grant, which evaluates their academic record but also their executive potential and the responsibilities and positions held over the course of their professional careers.
ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE GRANT FOR PEOPLE WITH A DISABILITY
