The Ministry of Finance has already approved the regulatory bases of the future scholarship program for opponents of bodies and scales of the General State Administration (AGE), which may reach 7,000 euros gross per year and will be renewable up to three times. In a ministerial order published this Friday in the Official State Gazette (BOE), the Treasury details the criteria that future calls for scholarships will follow, in which the level of income will be the key factor with the aim of eliminating “socioeconomic barriers”.
The ministry directed by María Jesús Montero has later detailed in a statement that the scholarships will amount to a maximum of 7,000 gross euros per applicant, depending on their situation and the opposition they are preparing. This amount is intended to help applicants with fewer resources or time to study some oppositions “that require a long and exhaustive preparation.” In addition to this, the Treasury points out that these oppositions normally require a trainer, without whom it is difficult to obtain good results, which implies an economic cost that constitutes an access limitation that now wants to be eliminated.
The program, managed by the National Institute of Public Administration (INAP), also aims to attract talent to the bodies and scales of the AGE, whose oppositions require special “dedication”, eliminating socioeconomic barriers. The call for scholarships, the Treasury has detailed, may be annual and it will specify the number of scholarships, the bodies to which it is addressed, the evaluation criteria and the deadlines.
According to the BOE, the scholarships will be awarded through a competitive competition procedure, mainly by income level, although passing exercises in the last two calls, personal circumstances or the accredited situation of gender violence, victim of terrorism or disability. In order to access the aid, applicants will have to prove that they are preparing the opposition under the direction of a specialized center or one or more preparers, who cannot be direct relatives and must be members of the corresponding bodies or scales, or professionals. with trajectory.
The scholarships may be renewed up to three times, as long as the beneficiary continues to meet the requirements and obligations, has a favorable report from his preparer, and has filed for opposition. The beneficiaries will have to justify that they have carried out the activity for which they were awarded the scholarship by submitting a supporting report every six months (specifying specific actions and results obtained), a certificate of achievement from the trainer and economic documentation of the payment of materials, fees of opposition or displacement invoices. In case of non-compliance with these obligations, the beneficiaries will lose the scholarship and will have to return the amounts received, in addition to being subject to a sanctioning regime.
