You’d hardly find an Indian student who doesn’t wish to pursue a world-class education overseas. For many, though, the high cost of studying abroad makes it imperative for them to find an additional source of financial support in the form of a scholarship or an education loan. International scholarships, particularly, provide a priceless opportunity to make your international degree affordable.
The French Academic Co-operation & Excellence, or FACE, Scholarship is one such excellent opportunity that gives Indian students a golden chance to pursue their higher education in France. Students looking to pursue one of the five master’s degrees under the program can reduce their study expenses significantly with the help of this scholarship that offers a tuition fee waiver of up to EUR 5000.
The scholarship is being offered by IDRAC India Center – a training center of IDRAC Business School, France in India – with an objective to facilitate deserving candidates aspiring for French Qualifications.

Study in France
There couldn’t be a better country for a student’s professional and career development than France – its cities are known to be some of the most student-friendly cities in the world, and the country is fast-emerging as the centre of European commerce and culture. Whether it is in niche subjects like Wine Industry Management or International Luxury Management, or in technical areas like IT or Business Engineering, France provides the perfect business environment for a student to build a practical foundation to their study experience.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do! And when in France, speaking the local language can open many a door for you. With the FACE Scholarship, selected scholars can get the added benefit of picking up the French language through our partners and world-leaders in imparting French-language education – Allianz Francaise. The International organization was founded in 1883 with the objective of promoting French language and culture around the world and specializes in providing certifications for French as a second language. Learning the language would be particularly beneficial to students looking to get professional experience in France post their degree.
Work in France
Which brings us to the absolute icing on the cake with a pretty little cherry on top! FACE Scholars will have the added opportunity of getting a post-study work permit and stay back in France for up to 2 years after completing their degree successfully. Thus, students can not only substantially reduce their study costs through the scholarship but also get a chance to earn back their tuition by working in France post the completion of their master’s degree.
