The PhilFrance Scholarship programs were founded in 2016 in an effort to provide exceptional Filipino students access to France’s higher education system.
The first batch of awardees, then comprised of grantees of both the PhilFrance Master and the PhilFrance-CHED programs, pursued degrees in France.
Specializations in fields such as management, public health, international development, public policy, and the French language were highlighted and remain the more sought-after education paths in France, both to scholars and independent students alike.
