French Government Scholarships (AEFE)
The French government, through the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE) and the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs supports student mobility by offering scholarships to students with an excellent academic background (bourses Excellence-Major).
These scholarships allow the best non-French students from French high schools abroad to follow a higher education degree in France. The scholarship is awarded for a maximum duration of 5 years and up to Master 2 level or equivalent.
Non-French students are selected on every continent. Nominations are made by the school's principal and approved by the Cooperation and Cultural Action Service of the diplomatic post in the country. To secure the scholarship, selected students must receive the baccalaureate with "very good" or "good."
