Financial Support for international students - Eiffel

How does it work ?

The Eiffel grants of excellence are offered to foreign students. It concerns two different levels:
-the master’s level offers 12 to 36 months of funding to enable scholarship holders to earn a master-level degree.
-the doctoral level supports up to 12 months of doctoral research in France as part of a joint doctoral program. These 12 months may be divided into 2 or 3 separate periods.

Two stages of application :
-the student applies to the institution (check the deadline per faculty/school below)
-the institution transmits and supports the application to Campus France

CHECK CAMPUS FRANCE WEBSITE and vade-mecum:  for any information regarding eligibility, funding, etc.


"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."
