Academic Excellence Scholarships


The educational project of ELISAVA Barcelona School of Design and Engineering has always promoted the development of its students by improving their competences in all fields to turn them into professionals capable to answer the new challenges.

True to this methodology, ELISAVA calls the Academic Excellence Scholarships for the Official Degrees given at the School: the Degree in Design and the Degree in Engineering in Industrial Design that recognizes and awards the merit of the students. Obtaining this kind of aid covers the 50% of the academic year cost (except the Pompeu Fabra University Taxes and Fees).
