Impuls Grants

The Fundació Autònoma Solidària has set up its own line of funding for students with disabilities at the UAB, especially those who are dependent on other people. The line has the support of private companies and donors, the Board of Trustees of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and also private foundations. This line of funding aims to facilitate entry to the university and allow students to complete their higher education as a preparatory step to entry into the labour market.

Student benefiting from this funding will receive a grant for personal assistance during the academic day and mobility assistance in cases where they have difficulty using the public transport system without help or require support to use specific transport services from their place of residence to their university building. There is an annual call for grant Applications at the beginning of each academic year. The Impuls Programme is aimed at the population with disabilities who have most difficulties taking university courses and entering the labour market.
