Call for applications for the 2006-2007 Eiffel scholarships
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has launched a call for applications for the 2006-2007 Eiffel scholarships and Eiffel PhD scholarships on its website, France Diplomatie. Eiffel scholarships are awarded to foreign students for study in France towards a master’s degree, primarily in three areas: engineering, economics & management, law & political science.
Under the program 400 scholarships are offered every year. The scholarships provide recipients with a monthly allowance of about 1,000 euros. The students chosen are also given health coverage, travel expenses and cultural activities. Since 1999, when the program was first founded, over 8,000 candidates have applied and over 2,600 have been chosen.
Also, in 2005 Eiffel Doctoral scholarships were introduced, providing a monthly allowance of 1,400 euros; these 80 "mobility" scholarships complementing the Eiffel scholarship program are awarded to foreign doctoral students for ten months for theses on a joint-management or joint tutorship basis.
Complete information on these scholarship programs is available on the Ministry’s website (in French)
