need-based criteria such as students' household income per household member or type and level of student’s
disability. The total annual amount of the grant is HRK 10 800 (HRK 1 200 per month during nine months). In the
academic year 2015/16, the ministry provided about 5 200 grants.

of ECTS achieved in the past years of study and the grades obtained. The grant amounts and distribution criteria
are determined autonomously by the universities.
Further grants for students are provided by a number of regional and local governments.
