Bursaries and financial aid for European students

Please note: European Students are students from a European Economic Area (EEA) member country.

CROUS bursaries (based on household income)

Students from a European Economic Area member country who have studied in France for at least one year are eligible to apply for the CROUS needs-based bursary (fr.) by completing the Student Social File (Dossier Social Etudiant) on the CROUS website from the 15th January. Students are required to apply every year and do so before the 31st May.

Apply for the CROUS bursary: Student Social File (Dossier Social Etudiant) application (fr.)

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.
