Several mobility grants are available to help you finance your study period abroad. Such mobility grants offer you financial support but, in the majority of cases, will not fully finance your period abroad. Studying or carrying out an internship abroad can be costly and we advise you to carefully prepare your budget before your departure.
- CROUS bursary students are able to keep their bursary and additional financial support from Sciences Po during their semester or year abroad
- Some regions in France also offer international mobility grants and students enrolled on a regional campus may be eligible to apply. Students have the responsibility of applying directly to the region
- Exchange students are not eligible to apply for a student mobility grant through Sciences Po
- The majority of mobility grants are awarded on the basis of family income
