English translation:Grant / Subsidy / Subvention
Explanation:
Yes, I agree that these answers have come up before, but I thnk a little more explanation is required:

"Grant" may be in specie not only money;

"Subsidy" is usually government money to private business / commmercial activity;

"Subvention" is usually paid out to foment scientific or artistic endeavour.

Also it is possible that a "subsidy" may someday and under certain conditions have to be paid back in some way, while the other two never.

native speaker gut feeling, and e.g. Webster

grant

Syn.
subsidy
subvention n. f.


Déf. :
Soutien financier accordé par l'État ou des collectivités publiques (subvention publique), ou encore d'autres organismes (subvention privée) à une entreprise, à un particulier ou à une collectivité.


Note :
La subvention est accordée à la discrétion de l'organisme subventionneur. Il en établit lui-même le bénéficiaire et le montant et peut fixer des conditions à satisfaire.
On distingue, selon leur destination, trois types de subventions : la subvention d'équilibre, la subvention d'exploitation et la subvention d'équipement. Le terme « subside » désigne une somme versée à un particulier ou à un groupement soit à titre d'aide ou de subvention, ou encore en rémunération de services.
Comparer « grant » avec « entitlement ».
