Apply for the 2020 Eiffel Excellence Scholarships for International Students.

The French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs has developed the Eiffel Excellence Scholarship Program to empower French higher education institutions to attract top foreign students to enroll in their Masters and Ph.D. programmes.


This provides opportunities to prospective international private and public sector decision-makers in target areas of study, and supports Master's level applicants from developing countries up to 30 years of age, and Ph.D. applicants from developing and advanced countries up to 35 years of age.
Host Institution(s):
French Universities and Academic Institutions
Level/Field(s) of study:
Master’s degree program, in an Engineering program, or in a Ph.D. program (in a joint doctoral thesis supervision, in partnership with a foreign higher education institution) in four major fields:
•  law;
•  economics and management;
• engineering sciences at Masters’ level, sciences in the broad sense for the Doctorate/Ph.D. level (engineering science; exact sciences: mathematics, physics, chemistry, and life sciences, nano and biotechnologies, Earth, space and environmental sciences, information sciences and technologies and communication);
• political sciences
Scholarship value/inclusions/duration:
For Master’s level studies, the Eiffel scholarship includes a monthly allowance of €1,181 (a maintenance allowance of €1,031 and a monthly stipend of €150) and can be awarded for 12-36 months.  For Ph.D. level studies, the Eiffel scholarship includes a monthly allowance of €1,400 and is awarded for a maximum of 12 months.
In addition, the program meets various expenses including international return trip, national and local transport, health insurance, and cultural activities. Scholarship holders may also receive an additional housing allowance, under certain conditions.
Eligibility: 
Nationality: This program is reserved for candidates of non-French nationality. Candidates with two nationalities, one of which is French, are not eligible.
Age: For the master’s level, candidates must be not older than 30 on the date of the 2020 Call of Applications, that is, students born after March 1989. At the Ph.D. level, candidates must be not older than 35 on the date of the 2020 Call of Applications, that is, students born after March 1984.
Origin of applications: Only applications submitted by French educational establishments are accepted. These establishments undertake to enroll scholarship holders on the course for which they have been selected. Applications submitted by any other means shall not be considered. Furthermore, any candidate nominated by more than one establishment shall be disqualified.
Courses of study: Scholarships are for students wishing to enroll on a master’s course, including at an engineering school, and for Ph.D. students. The Eiffel Programme does not apply to French-run master’s courses abroad. It does not apply to train under an apprenticeship contract or a professional training contract either.
For Eiffel Master Scholarship:  No application will be accepted for any student who applied previously but was rejected, even if the application is submitted by a different establishment or in another field of study. Students who have already been awarded an Eiffel scholarship at the master’s level are not eligible to re-apply at the master’s level.
For Eiffel PhD Scholarship: Establishments may nominate a candidate who was previously awarded an Eiffel scholarship at the master’s level for a scholarship at a Ph.D. level. Candidates who have already been awarded an Eiffel scholarship once during their Ph.D. cannot be awarded it for a second time. No application will be accepted for any student who applied previously but was rejected, even if the application is submitted by a different establishment or in another field of study.
Language skills: When pre-selecting non-French-speaking candidates, establishments must make sure that their language skills meet the requirements of the relevant course of study.
Application instructions:
Applications are NOT accepted from students directly. Applications for EIFFEL scholarships are submitted by French Higher Education Institutions.
