What is a school or study allowance?

A school or study allowance is a form of financial support from the Flemish Government to help cover school or study costs.
• School allowances have been designed for infants or pupils attending elementary or secondary education. The school allowance will be paid automatically if you are entitled to it.
• A study allowance is aimed at students attending a university college or university.
To qualify the pupil or student in question must attend an institution accredited by the Flemish Community.
