Entente Cordiale invites applications for its scholarships. These are for outstanding British and French postgraduates in any subject to study or carry out research for an academic year in the partner country.
The following awards are available:
• long term scholarships cover a whole academic year and are best suited for students wishing to study for a master 1 or a master 2 in a French university or grande école. Scholars receive a maintenance award of £8,000 (in Paris) per year or £7,500 (outside Paris) per year and a maximum contribution of £3,000 per year towards the payment of tuition fees. Please note that the scholarship is for one year only and is not renewable.

Candidates must be of British nationality and have an excellent track record of achievements, both academically and otherwise. Language skills are as follows: arts and humanities students must have a good command of French.
