The Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program at Sciences Po aims to support 126 talented African students through their studies and to offer the next generation of leaders a world-class social science education, so they can go on to become changemakers in their home countries.

Over six years (2017 - 2022), the Scholars Program will fund:

Students registered at Sciences Po in the preparatory course who will take the competitive exams for the National Administration School (ENA) can apply for a bursary.

Submission deadline for a Sciences Po application including the required documentation for the Eiffel Scholarship is October 18, 2020 for students already admitted at Sciences Po (including applicants who deferred their arrival or those who received conditional offer last year and who provide us with a valid test result before the deadline of October 18, 2020) and November 1st, 2020 for new candidates at Sciences Po.

Students registered at Sciences Po in the preparatory course who will take the French competitive examinations for the civil service can apply for the Diversity in the Civil Service bursary (ALDIV). This bursary is managed by the Paris prefecture and the Ile de France region.

The bursary amounts to 2000 euros for the year and can be combined with the Crous bursary. Bursaries are awarded on the basis of household income and academic results.

Sciences Po created the Emile Boutmy scholarship, named after the founder of Sciences Po (1871), in order to welcome the very best international students from outside the European Union. The Emile Boutmy Scholarship is awarded to top students whose profiles match the admissions priorities of Sciences Po and individual course requirements.

Created with the support from the Fondation de France , the Seydoux scholarship commemorates the memory of René Seydoux and his commitment to dialogue in the Mediterranean region. The scholarship is open to citizens and/or residents in ten countries located in the expanded Mediterranean Basin allowing who wish to study at Sciences Po at the undergraduate or graduate level.

The Stephen M. Kellen Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship designed to attract the brightest and most deserving students to the Dual BA program between Sciences Po and Freie Universität Berlin.

It encourages promising young individuals to commit to Europe by giving them the keys to law, economics, history, political science, and sociology; the opportunity to speak at least three languages; and the ability to navigate in both German and French cultures.

The purpose of the Civil Society Leadership is to help future leaders in countries where civil society is challenged by a deficit of democratic practice in local governance and social development.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, the deadline for applications is the 15th May 2019. All applications must be made online.
