Eiffel Excellence Scholarship Program

About the Scholarship

The French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs launched the Eiffel Excellence Scholarship Program to help French higher education institutions draw top international students to their master’s and PhD programs.

Benefits of Eiffel Excellence Scholarship Program

1. The Eiffel Program does not pay for tuition. The highest level of financial assistance for students is anticipated from educational institutions.

2. As recipients of French government scholarships, students accepted to public educational institutions are exempt from enrollment costs.

3. The Eiffel scholarship includes a monthly payment of €1,181 ($1,031 for maintenance and €150 for stipend). The package also includes a round-trip international ticket, health insurance, and access to cultural activities.

4. Students may also benefit from a housing allowance.

Housing Allowance

Private Housing: You may be eligible for an additional housing allowance if you live in private accommodation rather than a university house.

Simply email a copy of the housing contract and the receipt for your first rent payment, along with your name, address, and contact information, within three months after signing the housing contract.

Housing Allowance Amount: The amount of allowance, regardless of the location, is €115 per month.

Special Case of Students in Paris and the Paris Region: since October 1st, 2003, students housed by Campus France in France in a regulated residence cannot benefit from the €115 housing allowance. The rent is already partly subsidized by the Eiffel program.


Requirements for Eiffel Excellence Scholarship Program

Only foreign nationals are eligible to apply for a scholarship from the French Government.

With dual nationality applicants, those with French nationality are ineligible.

For master’s courses, candidates must be no older than 30 on the date of the selection committee meeting, March 2020;

Only applications submitted by French educational establishments are accepted. These establishments undertake to enrol scholarship holders on the course for which they have been selected. Applications submitted by any other means shall not be considered. Any candidate nominated by more than one establishment shall be disqualified.

Scholarships are for students wishing to enrol on a master’s course, including at an engineering school. The Eiffel Program does not apply to French-run master’s courses abroad. It does not apply to training under an apprenticeship contract or a professional training contract either.

Educational establishments that shortlist non-French speaking applicants must ensure that their level of French is sufficient to enable them to integrate satisfactorily into the anticipated course

Combination with other scholarships: foreign students who, at the time of application, have already been awarded a French government scholarship under another program are not eligible, even if the scholarship in question does not include social security cover.

Eiffel Master’s Scholarships: 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 master’s level are not eligible to re-apply at master’s level.

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.
