Program Objectives

The Eiffel Scholarship Program is a tool developed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to enable French higher education institutions to attract the best foreign students to graduate courses at the master’s and doctorate.
It helps to train future foreign decision-makers, from the private and public sectors, in priority fields of study, and to stimulate applications from students from emerging countries for the master’s level and from emerging and industrialized countries for the doctoral level.”
