Eiffel Scholarships for International Students in France, 2022

Curated by Ishaaq Sarbah 

The French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs offers Eiffel scholarships for international students annually. These scholarships are awarded for pursuing a master degree at French host higher education institutions and a PhD through a thesis joint supervision or co-tutorship with a foreign higher education institution partner. It helps to shape the future foreign decision-makers of the private and public sectors, in priority areas of study and encourages applications from emerging countries at master’s level, and from emerging and industrialized countries at PhD level. The Eiffel Excellence Scholarship Programme was established by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development to enable French higher education establishments to attract top foreign students to enrol in their master’s and PhD courses. When pre-selecting non-French-speaking candidates, establishments must make sure that their language skills meet the requirements of the relevant course of study.


  • Eligible Countries: International students (except French students) are eligible to apply for these scholarships.
  • Entrance Requirements: Nationality: this program is reserved for non-French nationals. Candidates with two nationalities, one of which is French, are not eligible.
  • Age: for master’s level, candidates must be no older than 30 on the date of the 2021 Campaign, that is, students born after March 1989. At PhD level, candidates must be no older than 35 on the date of the 2021 Campaign, that is, students born after March 1984.
  • Levels of study: scholarships are granted to candidates wishing to enrol in a master’s program, including at an engineering school, and for PhD students. The Eiffel Program does not apply to French-run master’s programs abroad.
