Eiffel scholarships are awarded to foreign students for study in France towards a PhD or master’s degree, primarily in three areas:
· engineering, · economics & management, · law & political science.
The program aim is to attract elite foreign students from developing countries. Under the program 400 scholarships are offered every year. The scholarships provide recipients with a monthly allowance of about 1,000 euros.
The students chosen are also given health coverage, travel expenses and cultural activities. Applications from students currently studying outside France will be given priority over those from students already studying in France.
Applications for Eiffel grants are submitted by French higher education centres from a shortlist of outstanding students they would like to enroll on their courses.
Applications are not accepted from students themselves, or from non-French centres.
Centres submit applications on behalf of candidate students consistent with programme objectives, in accordance with instructions and guidelines issued by French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Applications to be submitted by 11 January every year
