Eligibility for the Scholarship:
Eligible Countries: International and French students are eligible to apply for this scholarship.
Entrance Requirements: The Q-Life Institute of PSL for quantitative biology offers competitive Master’s scholarships (€10,000/year) to follow year 1 and /or year 2 of the Interdisciplinary Master in Life Sciences (IMaLiS) to two types of students:
- Students holding a foreign bachelor’s degree in Life Sciences or in another discipline with a demonstrated background in Life Sciences,
- Students holding a French Master 1 or 2 degree or equivalent in Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or Geosciences (including French engineering school students).
The conditions for application are as follows:
- Students holding a foreign bachelor’s degree in Life Sciences, or in another discipline, but with a demonstrated background in Life Sciences, are eligible to IMaLiS and its scholarship program, at either the Master 1 or Master 2 levels (Master 2 applications require completion of a 4-year bachelor or a Master 1). The level of admission will take into account both student wishes and faculty evaluations of the candidacy. If a student is recruited at the Master 1 level, s/he may obtain a one-year scholarship that can be renewed for one additional year to cover the second year of IMaLiS. If recruitment takes place at the Master 2 level, the fellowship will be awarded for one year only. However, after completion of the Master 2 year, students are eligible to apply for additional fellowships under the auspices of the PSL Institute of Innovation and Technology or to pursue PhDs in PSL laboratories.
- Students holding a French Master 1 degree or equivalent (i.e. having completed the second year of engineering school) in Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or Geosciences who have demonstrated the interest in Life Sciences are eligible for the scholarship program and for the IMaLiS Master 1, to gain complementary training in Biology. In this case, renewal of the fellowship for continuation in the Master 2 program is not guaranteed but can be obtained on a competitive basis.
- Students holding a French Master year 2 degree or equivalent (i.e. engineering school diploma) in Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or Geosciences who have demonstrated an interest in Life Sciences are also eligible for the scholarship program and for the IMaLiS Master 2.
- Recipients of Master’s scholarships spend their second-semester internships in Q-Life laboratories, pursuing interdisciplinary Life Science projects. Acceptance is contingent upon successful completion of the prior degree.
English Language Requirements: English is used as the working language for both teaching and internships.
How to Apply: Application for a scholarship automatically includes application to the IMaLiS Master’s program (only one application is required). You will need to complete the PSL online application form for M1 or M2. (Opening at the beginning of March 2018) and to upload the following documents:
