"I’m Dung Le, a Vietnamese student at Toulouse School of Economics. It’s my great honor to benefit from the Eiffel scholarship for both Masters 1 and 2 in Statistics and Econometric. The scholarship is so respected that my university waives my tuition and administrative fees. Thanks to the generosity of the scholarship, I’ve been very financially comfortable. I 'm not exaggerating in saying that the scholarship is an essential factor in my academic success. I’m also grateful to Campus France for organizing cultural activities. This helps me integrate with French society and make friends with other students. Being awarded an Eiffel scholarship is surely a wonderful experience in my life."
