Meet Indian scholarship students at Sciences Po

Romasha comes from Calcutta, Alleiah from Ahmedabad and Akhil from Hindupur.
All three are outstanding students who could not have come to study in France or at Sciences Po without the various types of financial aid they receive. In this video, they talk about their life in France and their plans for the future. 

In the last five years, the number of Indian students has tripled at Sciences Po. For most of them, financial support is a deciding factor in coming to study abroad. They can of course benefit from Sciences Po’s financial aid policy for international students, but some of the schemes are also especially designed for Indian students.

Scholarships for all international students

  • The Emile Boutmy scholarship is Sciences Po’s scholarship for top international students from outside of the European Union. The deadline to apply is Tuesday 2 May 2017!
  • The Eiffel scholarship is run by the French ministry of foreign affairs to attract top foreign students to French universities. 40 percent of the Sciences Po recipients of this prestigious scholarship are Indian.
  • The Erasmus Plus scholarship is reserved for exchange students and is run by the European Union.

Will the Covid-19 Crisis Mark the Decline of the Populist Right?
