Université Paris-Saclay International Master’s Scholarships


The Université Paris-Saclay would like to promote access to its master’s (nationally-certified degree) programs to international students, taught in its member establishments, and to make it easier for highly-qualified foreign students to attend its University especially those wishing to develop an academic project through research up to the doctoral level.

The scholarships are awarded to students enrolled in Université Paris-Saclay master’s programmes on an academic merit-based basis.

Level of study:

All Master’s programmes in all academic fields for which Université Paris-Saclay is accredited, except for vocational training.

Target group:

International students

Scholarship value:

The Université Paris-Saclay scholarship is €10,000 per year. It is paid by the establishment the candidate is registered in for the duration of the academic year, and for a period of no less than 10 consecutive months per year. A maximum of €1,000 for travel and VISA expenses is also awarded depending on the candidate’s country of origin.


Are eligible:
• Newly arrived international students, aged 30 and under during the course of the selection year.

• International students living in France for less than a year, enrolled in a student programme that does not lead to a qualification.

• Individuals who have interrupted their studies for more than two consecutive years.

• Students holding any other type of scholarship whose amount exceeds 600€/month.


To be considered for the scholarships, students must first be admitted to a Master’s Programme offered at Université Paris-Saclay. Being admitted into a master’s program of the University does not automatically entitle you to a scholarship.

Only the students selected and contacted by the master’s program admissions panel of Université Paris-Saclay can submit the online application form for a scholarship. No unsolicited application is allowed.

The selection of scholarship laureates takes place in two successive rounds. The application deadline to a scholarship for each wave will be communicated by email to students concerned. Wave 1 Results will be announced mid-April 2018 and Wave 2 Results on mid-June 2018.
