France: Eiffel Scholarhips Programme 2009-2010

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font


The French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs launched the
Eiffel excellence scholarship programme in January 1999 to support
French centres of higher education in their international outreach initiatives, in a context of mounting competition among developed countries to attract elite students from overseas. In 2005, the scheme was extended with the Eiffel Doctorate programme, addressing high-calibre PhD students.

Deadline: 9 jan 2009

For greater clarity, the French Ministry of Foreign and European
Affairs is now introducing a single application procedure for its
Eiffel Scholarship and Eiffel Doctorate Scholarship programmes.

The new Eiffel programme thus covers two types of course:

  • Master’s postgraduate degree course
  • Ten-month co-tutored or co-managed component (preferably second or
    third year) of PhD course

The objectives of the Eiffel excellence programme run by the French
Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs remain unchanged, the first
being to offer French higher-education opportunities for future public-
and private-sector decision-makers in three priority areas: science; economics & management; and law & political science.
