Bursaries and financial aid for European students

Please note: European Students are students from a European Union member state country (other than France) or from a European Economic Area (EEA) member country.

CROUS bursaries (based on household income)

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

For more information about Crous needs based bursaries (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 will be eligible to receive Sciences Po's Europe bursary.

This bursary is only awarded to students during their first year of study in France. You will be required to apply for the Crous bursary directly through the CROUS (fr.) for your second year of study and applications must be made during your first year of study at Sciences Po between the 15th January and the 31st May.

Financial aid for students without a Crous Bursary

Students without a CROUS bursary whose household income per share is less than €12,583 and whose tuition fees will therefore amount to €0 for the 2018-2019 academic year will receive a financial aid of €370 (roughly 50% of the additional Sciences Po cost of living bursary for the CROUS level 0Bis).

This aid will be disbursed as a lump sum from September 2018 onwards provided that the student’s administrative registration is finalised. It will only be disbursed for years or semesters (50% of the amount) during which courses are attended at Sciences Po or during compulsory internship periods.
