Once the applications have been submitted they will be revised by the personnel of the AGAUR to check that the application is complete. If the application is incomplete, the AGAUR may request the missing information according to the terms of the announcement in question by means of the following mechanisms:

  • Publication of the requirement on the AGAUR's notice board:

    Documentation will be called for preferentially via the AGAUR's notice board if so provided for by the announcement. To this end, a notice will be posted on the AGAUR's notice board listing the applications that are either incomplete or need to be corrected, as well as the deadline for doing so. The notice will indicate that failure to amend the application within the term provided for (10 days) will be taken as a withdrawal of the application, following a decision that will be issued within the terms provided for in article 42 of the same law.

  • Individual notice: The documentation may also be required following the previsions of article 71 of the Law 30/1992, of November 26 on the legal system of the public administrations and the common administrative procedure, indicating that failure to amend the application within the term provided for (10 days) will be taken as a withdrawal of the application, following a decision that will be issued within the terms provided for in article 42 of the same law.

The applications will be revised according to the criteria given in the announcement. For further information on the system of assessment used by the AGAUR please see our section aboutAssessment.

The Selection Commission is the organ which proposes the award of the scholarships and grants after it has analysed the expert assessments. Its composition will be established in the rules of each one of the announcements and it will submit the decision proposal to the competent organ.

The decision of the award of the grants will be notified by the publication of the decision on the AGAUR's notice board and on its website for the purpose of information only. The maximum deadline for reaching a decision on the award is 6 months as of the day after the date of submittal of the application.The publication of the decision on the AGAUR's notice board will replace individual notification according to the general rules and regulations of the AGAUR.

When the announcement provides for the submittal of the document of acceptance, the submittal thereof within the term provided for in the announcement is an indispensable requirement for the applicant to be regarded as a beneficiary of the grant. Failure to submit the document of acceptance, duly registered, by the deadline, will constitute waiver of the grant.

The standard document of acceptance may be found on the website of the AGAUR as well as at its head offices.

Payment of the grant and/or the scholarship will be made according to the terms provided for in the announcement, once the grant/scholarship has been accepted. In any event, AGAUR will seek to facilitate payment to achieve the objectives of the announcement.

Justification will be made according to the terms of the announcement and within the deadline established by the latter. For certain announcements, the AGAUR will post the standard justification model on its website. Failure to provide justification according to the terms of the announcement will lead to the withdrawal of the grant.
