Bursaries and financial aid for French students

Crous Bursaries

These needs-based bursaries are awarded by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research to students under 28 years of age depending on family situation and household income. They are managed by the CROUS. CROUS bursaries are intended to supplement support from the family and by no means replace parents’ obligations.

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.
