Warning 4: we strongly recommend that you look for other scholarships on your side (ask the French embassy in your country) because the Eiffel scholarship is extremely competitive and it gives priority to new comers, ie students who have never been to France before. If you are already living in France at the time you are applying, the program chairs will not select your application.

Warning 5: if you are a regular applicant (meaning that you are not applying for Eiffel, Smarts-UP or PSL PhD Track Grant), you must wait until January 17th 2022 to apply on our portal. If you apply before that date, your application will be automatically dismissed.
