Eligibility for the Scholarship
Eligible Countries: Scholarships are available for French students.
Entrance Requirements: To be eligible for a scholarship from our Student Fulbright Program, the candidate must meet the following conditions:
- To be of French nationality. Applicants are eligible for the Fulbright program through the Bilateral Commission of their home country (find Fulbright programs in your home country on the US State Department website ).
- Have validated at least three years of higher education at the date of submission of the application.
- Have a very good knowledge of English. (As an indication, 92 minimum required for the TOEFL iBT)
- Be admitted to a US university for a Masters or PhD degree program that spans at least 9 months. (In general, bursary and admission applications are done in parallel: applicants must indicate in the file the universities to which they are applying and send us letters of admission as and when they are awarded.) Fellowships are awarded subject to definitive admission to the institutions included in the application file.
Students who hold dual French and American citizenship are ineligible for Fulbright scholarships (see ” Immigration Regulations Applicable to Fulbright Prize Winners” ). They may, however, be candidates for grants from the French-American Commission’s partner foundations.
Students already following a course of study at an American university are not eligible for scholarships from the Franco-American Commission. Similarly, candidates already in the United States cannot apply.
Fulbright and Partner Scholarships are non-renewable and can only be applied in the first year of a program of study, even if your program spans several years.
English Language Requirements: If all the universities you apply for do not provide or require TOEFL results, you do not need to submit one to the Commission. In place of the test results in your file, insert in a single pdf documents attesting to this exemption.
If you have already taken the TOEFL, IELTS, GRE or GMAT, please indicate the date of the examination and your results. You will need to upload your score reports in the section “TRANSCRIPTS AND ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTS”.
If you have already taken the test but have not yet received your results, please indicate the date you took the exam and then forward us your results as soon as they are available.
If you will be taking one of these tests in the near future, please put the date you plan to do so and then forward us your results as soon as they are available.
