Eiffel Scholarship

The Eiffel Excellence Program offers funding for a Master’s postgraduate degree course and PhD. It is run by the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs. Focusing on three key subject areas of sciences, economics and management, law and political science, its primary aim is to offer scholarships in French higher education establishments to future public and private sector decision-makers in foreign countries. As regards the Master’s degree course, students pursuing careers in teaching and research are not eligible as they can benefit from other grant programs.

It also seeks to encourage applicants from developing countries, particularly in Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and the new EU Member States, although this does include industrialised countries for the PhD component. The Eiffel Programme is designed to help French higher education establishments attract high calibre overseas students. Only French higher education establishments can submit applications and, if successful, they must enrol the candidates in the requested courses to obtain the Eiffel grant.

Note: The School must apply for the Eiffel scholarships on behalf of the selected students. All interested students please contact the Admission/Recruitment contact for the specific program for more information. Application deadline: November 25th, 2022.
