Merit-based Scholarships for Second year Postgraduate Studies

30.01.2019 - 19.04.2019

Cergy-Pontoise University (UCP) is pleased to announce that it is introducing for the eleventh time, scholarships based on merit for postgraduate students involved in Master’s research.

The scholarship amounts to a total of 7,000 euros, paid in ten monthly instalments over the 2019-2020 academic year. 6 scholarships will be granted by the UCP-Department of economics & business administration (UFR Economie & Gestion) and by Labex MME-DII (Thema Laboratory).

The criteria for selection are academic excellence as well as the candidate’s potential (see the application forms). A selection committee from UCP will choose the beneficiaries.

Those scholarships are open to students born after 31 December 1995, who already have a bachelor’s degree or an equivalent level in France (a 4-year degree) and who are currently in their first year of a postgraduate Master’s degree.

The selected candidates should confirm their enrolment at UCP and pay their tuition fees by 13 July 2019.

External candidates to the University of Cergy-Pontoise are specifically encouraged to apply. Students will have to justify that they speak English sufficiently well because the Master’s degree is taught in English (a TOEIC score or other English certificate is required). Foreign students from universities that have an exchange agreement with UCP will be given special priority.

For foreign students, the selected candidates will be given a room in the CROUS housing facilities, as well as help from the international relations service regarding travel and accommodation.

Students who apply for an UCP/UFR excellence scholarship to attend the M2 in Economic Analysis (M2 EA) are invited to fill in these documents and send them at the latest by the 20th of April, 2019.
