Application Process

Application Process

For the master’s program, the aid and cultural relations offices (SCAC) at France’s diplomatic missions will provide an assessment of applicants from their countries respectively.

 

The selection procedure will be carried out by a commission composed of four panels of professionals, one for each field of study. These panel members would not evaluate applications from institutions with which they are associated.

 

The assessment of applications takes into consideration the assessment provided by the embassy.

 

The selection conditions are as follows:

 

  • The qualifications of candidate, as demonstrated by his/her academic accomplishments, and, for doctoral students, the uniqueness of his/her research theme.
  • The fit with the global institutional policy nominating the applicant: The institution must be able to show how the selection of the selected applicant will advance the priorities of institution, predominantly its global strategy (strong prevailing collaboration with the home country of applicants and institution; relevance to the international excellence initiatives of the institution, presence of a system to maintain contact with international alumni and connections with the France Alumni platform [https://www.francealumni.fr/en]; support services quality offered to foreign students, particularly through the Bienvenue en France seal program;  its activities in the geographical area in question; the appropriateness of the host department and the fit with the application presented; efforts to promote the Eiffel Program and recipients of French government scholarship in official communications).
  • The partnership and collaboration procedure of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, predominantly the priority it allocates to certain nations with respect to this program.

 

The commission ranks every applicant on the basis of these three criteria. It then sets a minimum threshold of acceptability and assigns the scholarships as follows, based on the number of scholarships available:

 

  • At least 70% of the scholarships are granted to the highest-scoring applicants.
  • The remaining scholarships are granted to admissible applicants at institutions that have not yet received a scholarship.

 

The applications thus nominated constitute the final list of awardees.

APPLICATION PROCESS

For the master’s program, the aid and cultural relations offices (SCAC) at France’s diplomatic missions will provide an assessment of applicants from their countries respectively.

 

The selection procedure will be carried out by a commission composed of four panels of professionals, one for each field of study. These panel members would not evaluate applications from institutions with which they are associated.

 

The assessment of applications takes into consideration the assessment provided by the embassy.

 

The selection conditions are as follows:

 

  • The qualifications of candidate, as demonstrated by his/her academic accomplishments, and, for doctoral students, the uniqueness of his/her research theme.
  • The fit with the global institutional policy nominating the applicant: The institution must be able to show how the selection of the selected applicant will advance the priorities of institution, predominantly its global strategy (strong prevailing collaboration with the home country of applicants and institution; relevance to the international excellence initiatives of the institution, presence of a system to maintain contact with international alumni and connections with the France Alumni platform [https://www.francealumni.fr/en]; support services quality offered to foreign students, particularly through the Bienvenue en France seal program;  its activities in the geographical area in question; the appropriateness of the host department and the fit with the application presented; efforts to promote the Eiffel Program and recipients of French government scholarship in official communications).
  • The partnership and collaboration procedure of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, predominantly the priority it allocates to certain nations with respect to this program.

 

The commission ranks every applicant on the basis of these three criteria. It then sets a minimum threshold of acceptability and assigns the scholarships as follows, based on the number of scholarships available:

 

  • At least 70% of the scholarships are granted to the highest-scoring applicants.
  • The remaining scholarships are granted to admissible applicants at institutions that have not yet received a scholarship.

 

The applications thus nominated constitute the final list of awardees.
