The Université Paris-Saclay would like to promote access to its master’s (nationally-certified degree) programs to international students, taught in its member establishments, and to make it easier for highly-qualified foreign students to attend its University especially those wishing to develop an academic project through research up to the doctoral level.
The scholarships are awarded to students enrolled in Université Paris-Saclay master’s programmes on an academic merit-based basis.
Université Paris-Saclay, France
Level/Field of study:
All master’s programs in all disciplines for which the Université Paris-Saclay is accredited, except for work-and-study programmes
Number of Awards:
160 scholarships will be awarded for the 2017-2018 academic year
The Université Paris-Saclay scholarship is €10,000 per year. It is paid by the establishment the candidate is registered in for the duration of the academic year, and for a period of no less than 10 consecutive months per year. A maximum of €1,000 for travel and VISA expenses is also awarded depending on the candidate’s country of origin.
The scholarships are for newcomer international students, maximum 30 years old the year of acceptance, enrolled to a master’s program at Université Paris-Saclay, who satisfy criteria of academic excellence.
International students living in France less than one year, enrolled into a student programme that does not confer a degree or taking language classes that do not confer a degree (type FLE or other) are eligible.
To be considered for the scholarships, students must first be admitted to a Master’s Programme offered at Université Paris-Saclay. Being admitted into a master’s program of the University does not automatically entitle you to a scholarship. Only the students selected and contacted by the master’s program admissions panel of Université Paris-Saclay can submit the online application form for a scholarship. No unsolicited application is allowed.
The Scholarship Application Deadline for each wave will be sent by email to all students concerned. To participate in Wave 1, the students must ensure their application file be completed and the references be provided before the beginning of March at the latest. For Wave 2 participants, the application file is expected to be completed before the end of April.
