When is the merit scholarship paid?
PAYMENT. Regional aid to merit is paid during the first academic year, in a single payment €1,000 during the second academic semester (from the end of December 2021).
The inflation allowance of 100 euros is paid to scholarship students from today, announced the Minister in charge of Public Accounts, Sunday, December 12. This aid is paid by the Crous.
There is indeed a “topicality” of merit, and the work was initially published halfway through the presidency of N. Sarkozy 2, whose slogan: “Work more to earn more”, constituted the leitmotif of a campaign obsessed with the theme of merit.
Thinking in terms of merit implies relativizing the role of luck or fate, and admitting a minimum individual freedom, leading to the recognition of the resulting responsibility.
In official language, the notion of merit is reminiscent of military or civilian awards given to modern heroes, for service(s) rendered to the French nation. In the professional world, this is what could make an employee worthy of a raise or at least a proper congratulations.
The main difficulty when tackling the notion of merit is that each person has a personal definition of the issue.
