South African graduates are invited by the Embassy of France to apply to their competitive Masters and Doctorate scholarship program. Applications from all academic disciplines, especially science and technology, will be considered for the academic year starting in September 2018.

Since 2011, the French Embassy has invested over 1.5 million euros in South African student mobility and has sent around 180 South African students to complete their tertiary degrees at elite French Higher Education Institutions. The French government has supported just under forty students during the academic year 2016 /2017 with their Masters and Doctorate degrees. Some of the scholarship holders will continue with their studies in 2018/2019 at the French Higher Education institutions while others will return as France Alumni ambassadors to invest their acquired skills in South Africa.

The French Embassy scholarships can completely or partially finance the annual tuition fees, health insurance and Schengen visa fees for selected applicants. The round-trip airfare and monthly stipend towards living expenses can further be covered. Co-funding opportunities are strongly encouraged to strengthen the collaboration between South African and French institutions and the public and private sector.

Start identifying and applying to your French institutions now using the Campus France search engine. Remember, you do not have to speak French to study in France - numerous Master programs taught in English are available at French Higher Education institutions.
