Criteria to choose applicants depend on the cooperation programs concluded between the French government and the authorities of the country concerned. Scholarships are generally granted to high level students (masters’ or PhD). The duration of the project depends on the project. Applications are processed in the month of March preceding the academic start of year, so you should file your application as early as possible.
