Sciences Po Europe bursary
To compensate for the lack of bursaries and grants that the government awards to European students, Sciences Po has decided to establish a very ambitious social aid policy in their favour. Students from a European Economic Area member country who fulfill the CROUS eligibility requirements may be eligible to receive a bursary from Sciences Po.
This bursary is only awarded to students during their first year of study in France. Students who are eligible are required to apply for the bursary directly through the CROUS for their second year of study and applications must be made during the first year of study at Sciences Po.
To find out if you are eligible for the Sciences Po Europe bursary, students can calculate their CROUS status on the CROUS website.
Depending on your parents' gross income and family expense points (points de charge) you may be placed in one of eight levels (0bis to 7). these levels may entitle you to a tuition fee waiver and cost of living bursary.
Important information: Students are not authorised to accumulate the Sciences Po Europe bursary with any other bursary, grant or scholarship.
Students can apply for the Sciences Po Europe bursary as soon as they have been accepted to Sciences Po.
- by 29th April 2016 at the latest for students accepted to Sciences Po before the 15th April 2016
- by 30th June 2016 at the latest for students accepted to Sciences Po after the 15th April 2016
All incomplete or late applications will not be dealt with.
We aim to deal with your application within one month. All applications dealt with within this period must be considered complete and include the required translated documents.
