Scholarships allocated by the French Government correspond to a monthly allowance of €860 paid directly to the scholarship holder. This amount is intended to cover accommodation and living expenses on site.

These scholarships are granted for the duration of two academic years if the student is starting a first year of master, and one academic year if the student is starting a second year of master (as indicated in the enrollment certificate).

Apart from the monthly allowance of €860, being a scholarship holder of the French Government gives you access to many advantages:

  • A lump-sum allowance of €700 for expenses related to your studies (purchase of computer, printing costs of documents…). Accessible for scholarship holders of more than 3 months;
  • A flat-rate housing allowance of €167/month for scholarship holders living in the Île-de-France region (€143 outside Île-de-France)*. Upon arrival, the student without permanent accommodation is also compensated for up to 3 nights;
  • Enrolment in a private health insurance reimbursed up to €264. Enrolment in the general social security system is free of charge. Both registrations are compulsory and guarantee effective social protection;
  • Exemption from the CVEC (student life and campus contribution), which is worth €91.

* Allowance valid for housing with a monthly rent higher than €188. In the case of a lower rent, the student will only be entitled to half.


Requirements to apply

  • Be legally resident in Estonia. French citizens (including binationals) are not eligible.
  • Hold a recognised higher education diploma enabling you to enroll in at a French higher education institution.
  • Have an adequate level of French (diplôme d’études en langue française, DELF), except in the case of training provided in English.
  • Be enrolled or in the process of being enrolled in a French institution eligible for the 2024/2025 academic year.

The call is open to students of all disciplines.

The grant cannot be cumulated with a scholarship awarded by another French Ministry or an Erasmus + scholarship.
