There are different types of scholarships. Some will cover all your financial needs for one or even several academic years, allowing you to focus completely on your studies, while others will provide a one-off payment as partial financial relief during the academic year. Other scholarships are also intended to help students enrolled in a French establishment to do their internship abroad.

There are various funding sources: they can be governments, universities, local authorities or organizations, either in your home country or in France.

It is therefore essential that you give yourself plenty of time to do your research and take a proactive approach to finding and applying for scholarships.

In this section we have listed different scholarships but be aware it is far from being exhaustive.
