Warning 4: we strongly recommend that you look for other scholarships on your side (ask the French embassy in your country) because the SMARTS-UP scholarship is extremely competitive and there are a lot of applicants.

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.
