Top scholarships to study in France

France – the land of food, fashion and fine art – is also famous for being an education hub. Cities like Paris and Lyon are renowned for their world class education institutions that attract international students by the drove, and are known to be extremely student-friendly, with student discounts and affordable housing for students available readily.

Luckily for Indian students, there are a few scholarship opportunities they can avail to pursue higher education in France. These scholarship programs are offered by the French Embassy and are named after the renowned physicist, Georges Charpak, who was part of the French Resistance in World War II, and was later awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his contributions to Nuclear Physics.

Charpak Master’s Program

The scholarship is open to Indian residents under the age of 30 years who are pursuing their Masters in France in any stream or field of study. The scholarship provides a visa fee waiver for the selected candidates, along with a monthly living allowance and medical insurance. The candidates are selected based on their academic achievements and the submitted Statement of Purpose.

Charpak Research Internship Program

The candidates must belong to an economics, natural science or engineering background and be less than 30 years of age.

Charpak Exchange Program

For those Indian students currently enrolled in an Indian educational institution that has a tie-up with a French Institute, the Charpak Exchange Program is an attractive proposition. The Exchange Program is open to students of all streams and fields of study who are under the age of 30 years at the time of application. The Scholarship covers a full waiver of the tuition and visa fees, medical insurance, as well as a monthly stipend of 615 Euros for the 4-month duration of the program.
