French Consulate - Excellence Scholarships Schemes

 

The French Consulate is glad to announce that it has increased its funding for its Excellence Scholarships Schemes in order to provide students with greater international exposure, particularly in light of changes during the recent pandemic. We do believe that a global education is the key driver to prepare tomorrow’s leaders.

 

For Master’s Degrees, students interested in studying in France can apply to the Alexandre Yersin Excellence Scholarship. It includes financial support to cover tuition fees (up to 5000€ per year), a monthly living allowance of 660€ for the duration of the programme and individual assistance to help students settle in France (accommodation, social welfare and insurance). No requirement in the French language is needed, as France has over 1600 programmes taught in English.

 

For Post-Doctoral researchers, France offers the “Make Our Planet Great again (MOGPA)” Scholarship Scheme to support young researchers through this 12-months Visiting Fellowship Programme.  The research project is focused on transdisciplinary “One Health” approach, and aims to take a global view of health issues, environmental management and pressures on biodiversity to better prevent and respond to emerging diseases with pandemic risks. The Programme will be conducted from January 2022.

 

In a global context marked by the health crisis and a slowdown of student mobility, France reaffirms its ambition to welcome international students and ensure their personal safety and well-being. They are amongst the priority groups for visa deliverance from the French Consulate.

 

France maintains consistent relationships with universities in Hong Kong, counting over 160 existing partnerships between local and French higher educational institutions. Cooperation in science and research is strengthened by a long-standing partnership with the RGC, which co-finances Joint Research Scheme-Procore and Joint Research Scheme-ANR.
