The study grants Act since the General Council in its session of 28 June 2002, has approved the following: the study grants Act preamble The social and economic development in the beginning of the new century is based on a larger and better training of citizens. The information society, which is the basis of the development of advanced societies, and the services sector of the Andorran economy, require also a more accurate education of the young.

This challenge can do not ignore another that is also very important, the maintenance and, to the extent possible, the strengthening of social cohesion. The new technologies and the increasing of the professional requirements may cause fractures in the Andorran social body.

Within this framework, there is no doubt that the education system has a fundamental role, because it provides the basic tools to each individual to develop as a person, as a citizen and as a professional. Within the education system the aid in the study of secure, guaranteed free of compulsory, that any student progress in teaching as past as will enable it to their personal capabilities, without which economic constraints can be an obstacle to this progression.

For these reasons, it has been necessary to reflect on the results of the system of aid for the current study. The system introduced in 1992 represented a notable advance in respect of which there was then, but did not respond well enough to the principle of equity, especially at the University level, so as to generalize the aid does not allow serve more intensely and sufficiently the need for more accused.

It was necessary, therefore, to adjust better to the mechanisms that allow us to act more selectively in the resolution of situations that, objectively, demand a deeper priority and help from the public power.

This law, on the basis of common general principles, establishes two basic types of aid for the study. Provides for the lost scholarships, bursaries in the background, as a complement of the compulsory and post-compulsory secondary education, preobligatoris and, even, for media professionals and university educations. It also establishes a system of credits for students of University careers and for graduate education. Within these two basic types of financial aid provides a set of methods that should allow a more accurate approximation to the real needs of the people who ask for the help and, thus, more effectively respond to your requests.

In short, this law is based on the principle that the family is responsible for the maintenance of the children, until they finish their training cycle, including the teachings that they must allow them the exercise of a profession, and which corresponds to the State, these levels of education, supply the economic shortcomings of the families if these limitations may disrupt significantly the evolution of school students. Next to this conception and complementing it, the law considers that a young resident of Andorra or, when you get to higher education, is also a person who invests in their own future, and that the fact that this future is more promising, also will have a positive influence on the society as a whole of the Principality; for this reason the loan system is a mechanism that allows expression of a grant from the public sector to the personal initiative of the University student, already adult, it decides to grow deeper in their professional qualification.
