Evaluation guidelines

The scholarship committee evaluates each application in a careful and impartial manner. The final selection of candidates is based on (but not limited to) the following criteria:

  • Merit - as shown in the applicant's successful academic, leadership, and professional experience
  • Motivations for studying in France - based on the selected Master's program and French higher education institution (HEI), as well as in the strength of the arguments they present in their academic essays
  • Financial need - as presented in the document/s submitted

Important reminder

Any attempt to unduly influence the decision-making process (such as intervention by third parties) will result in the dismissal of the candidate’s application.
