 The Eiffel Excellence Scholarship Program was established by the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs to enable French higher education institutions to attract top foreign students to enrol in their masters and PhD programs. It gives the opportunity to the future foreign decision-makers of the private and public sectors, in priority areas of study, and encourages applicants from developing countries at master’s level, and from developing and industrialized countries at PhD level.

The scholarship may cover internship periods of no more than 25% of the total duration of the master program (please see “duration of the scholarship” at page 4 of the application file) The internship period must be an integral part of the course and be referred as mandatory in the higher education institution curriculum.

If the student signs an apprenticeship contract or a professional training contract, the scholarship shall be automatically terminated.
