Scholarship / Financial aid: scholarships available
Date: one academical year
Deadline: 11 January 2008
Open to: students
Eiffel excellence scholarships are awarded to high-achieving overseas students to whom French centres of higher education would like to offer a place on a Master’s or PhD course. The courses taken by these students in France ultimately target positions of responsibility in the public or private sector, rather than careers in teaching or research.
The French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs gives priority to candidates from emerging countries (starting with Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and new members of the European Union), though the PhD scholarships also address students from industrialized countries.
Eiffel grants cover the following subject areas:
1. Engineering sciences for the Master’s course, and sciences in a broader sense for the PhD course (engineering sciences, exact sciences (mathematics, physics, chemistry) life sciences, nano- and bio-technologies, environment sciences, and information & communication sciences).
2. Economics and management.
3. Law and political science.
Academic levels covered by the Eiffel programme
French centres of higher education putting forward candidates for Eiffel scholarships undertake to enrol successful applicants on one of the following types of course:
1. Master’s course
2. PhD course co-tutored or co-managed with partner higher education centre in the student’s country of origin
Candidates must not be aged over 30 (in the year of selection) for a Master’s scholarship or over 35 for a PhD scholarship.
- Holders of other French government grants (including welfare coverage grants),
- Previous applicants for Eiffel grants, even in a different subject,
- Applicants not presented by a French centre (i.e. applications by students themselves, or submitted by a non-French centre)
- Duplicate applications, i.e. students proposed by more than one French centre.
Amount of Eiffel scholarship
The Eiffel (1) programme does not cover tuition fees, though the higher education centres concerned are invited to apply the best possible financial conditions to Eiffel scholarship-holders.
Enrolment fees at state-run higher education centres are waived for students on French government scholarship programmes such as this.
