The Eiffel Excellence Scholarship Programme was established by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs to enable French higher education establishments to attract top foreign students to enrol in their master’s and PhD courses.

It helps to shape the future foreign decision-makers of the private and public sectors, in priority areas of study, and encourages applications from emerging countries at master’s level, and from emerging and industrialized countries at PhD level.

Deadline for receipt of applications by Campus France : January 12th, 2018

Objectives of the Eiffel program

The Eiffel scholarship program is a tool developed by the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and designed to allow French higher education institutions attract the best foreign students in diploma courses at Masters' and Doctorate/PhD level.

This allows to train the next foreign decision makers in private and public sectors in critical studies fields, and boost applications by students from emerging countries at Masters' level and emerging and industrialised countries at PhD/Doctorate level.

Fields of studies

The four major fields of studies covered by Eiffel scholarships are:

  • law;
  • economics and management;
  • engineering sciences at Masters' level, sciences in the broad sense for the Doctorate/PhD 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.

French higher education institutions presenting applicants to the Eiffel program will register them:

  • in courses attested by a Masters' degree;
  • in a course attested by an engineering degree;
  • in a PhD course as part of a joint supervision or joint direction of thesis with a partner foreign higher education institution.
  • Nationality: this program is exclusively for foreign applicants. Binational applicants who are part French are not eligible.
  • Age: At Masters' level, the applicant must be at most 30 years old at the date of the selection committee, i. e. be born the same day or after March 12, 1987.
  • At PhD level, the applicant must be at most 35 years old at the date of the selection committee, i. e. be born the same day or after March 12, 1982.

Origin of applications: only applications filed by French institutions are eligible.

  • French institutions guarantee to register scholarship recipients in the training for which they were selected. Applicants filed through other means are not eligible. In addition, an applicant presented by more than one institution will have its application rejected.

-          Trainings available: are eligible applicants able to study in a training granting a degree at Masters' level, including in schools of engineering, and applicants in PhD.

  • Outsourced French trainings abroad are not included in the scheme.
