Entente Cordiale Scholarships Available for Research or Study in France

Established in 1995 by the UK and French governments, the Entente Cordiale scholarship programme provides financial support to British postgraduate students who wish to study or conduct a research project in France.

Scholarships are available for ambitious projects in any discipline (natural sciences as well as social sciences and humanities) conducted at a French university or public/private research institution for between 3 and 6 months. Scholars may undertake research internships, credit-bearing courses, or French language classes (preferentially at Master’s degree level). Scholarships may also be available for applicants looking to take part in entrepreneurial training schemes.

Eligible candidates are students from the UK seeking to study/research in France at Master’s degree level.

Applicants are expected to have already established contact with their prospective host institution, and where necessary should have already applied to that institution. Applicants are also required to prove their ability to function without any major difficulty in a French-speaking environment.

Recipients are entitled to a monthly allowance of €700 to cover living expenses. Scholarship recipients are also entitled to join the Entente Cordiale Alumni Association, which aims to enhance career development opportunities amongst its members.

Applications for the 2021-2022 programme close on 16 April 2021.
