Eiffel Scholarhips Programme 2009/2010, France

Deadline: Vendredi, 9 janvier 2009

The French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs launched the
Eiffel excellence scholarship programme in January 1999 to support
French centres of higher education in their international outreach
initiatives, in a context of mounting competition among developed
countries to attract elite students from overseas. In 2005, the
scheme was extended with the Eiffel Doctorate programme, addressing
high-calibre PhD students.

For greater clarity, the French Ministry of Foreign and European
Affairs is now introducing a single application procedure for its
Eiffel Scholarship and Eiffel Doctorate Scholarship programmes.

The new Eiffel programme thus covers two types of course:

Master’s postgraduate degree course
Ten-month co-tutored or co-managed component (preferably second or
third year) of PhD course

The objectives of the Eiffel excellence programme run by the French
Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs remain unchanged, the first
being to offer French higher-education opportunities for future
public- and private-sector decision-makers in three priority areas:
science; economics & management; and law & political science.
