Scholarships 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 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 must complete their application before the 15th May.

For more information about Crous needs based bursaries.

Sciences Po Europe bursary

Sciences Po has established a very ambitious social aid policy in favour of European students for their first year of study in France. European students who fulfill the eligibility requirements, will be able to apply for the Sciences Po Europe bursary.

Financial aid for students without a Crous Bursary

Students without a CROUS bursary whose tuition fees amount to €0 after calculation for the 2022-2023 academic year will receive an annual financial aid of €400 (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 2022 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.
