Eiffel Excellence Scholarships

Campus France is calling for applications for the 2024/2025 round of Eiffel Excellence Scholarships

The Eiffel scholarship program was developed by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs to enable French higher education and research establishments to attract the best foreign students to master's and doctoral degree programs.

The program is designed to train future foreign decision-makers in the private and public sectors, in priority fields of study.

For both parts of the Eiffel program, the scholarship is awarded for the academic year corresponding to the call for applications. (This period must begin between September 1 and December 31 of the year the scholarship is awarded).

The Eiffel scholarship program has two components:

  • A Master's program, which provides funding for 12, 24 or 36 months of training leading to a Master's degree (candidates currently studying in France are ineligible).
  • A PhD program, which provides funding for 6 to 18 months of mobility, depending on the year of enrolment, as part of a cotutelle program, and a 36-month grant on condition of enrolment in the first year of the thesis, for first-time students only.

Fields of study for the Master's and PhD programs 

Both Eiffel scholarship programs cover the following seven subject areas:

Science and technology:

  • Biology and Health
  • Ecological transition
  • Mathematics and Numeracy
  • Engineering Science

Human and Social Sciences:

  • French history, language and civilization
  • Law and Political Science
  • Economics and Management

Only applications with an average grade of at least 15/20 over the last three academic years will be submitted by Sorbonne Université to Campus France.

 An electronic version of applications must be returned before December 8, 2023 to Patricia Zizzo.

  • By the Master's program director (for the Master's program)
  • By the director of the doctoral school (for the PhD program)

Only part 3 of the application form, containing general information about the institution, will be completed by the International Mobility Office of the Department of Education and Student Life.

ATTENTION: Do not consider the closing date of Campus France. Applications arriving after December 8, 2023 will not be processed.
