Are grants and scholarships available ?
CampusFrance de Manille is an agency of the French government promoting French higher education, thus it does not award scholarships to individual students.
There are a wide variety of scholarships available, which differ according to:
- the funding agency (the French government, foundation, company, school etc.)
- the target audience (PhD students, masters etc.)
- nationality of the beneficiary
- the amount of the grant
- the duration of the scholarship
Regarding the French government grants:
Applications for scholarships awarded by the French Government be placed with the cultural department of the Embassy of France in your home country. The criteria for selecting candidates vary by program of cooperation between government and French authorities of the country concerned. Scholarships are generally awarded to top students (masters or doctorate). The duration of the scholarship depends on the project. The applications begin March preceding the academic year, so one should make the request as early as possible.
