CampusFrance launches a catalogue of grants

Laurent Cousin

CampusFrance has published a catalogue of study programs and grants for foreign researchers.

CampusFrance recently put on line a catalogue of university study programs for young foreign researchers and students, available in French and English. According to CampusFrance, it “provides information on over 120 aid programs available from local, regional and national government sources in France, multilateral bodies, corporations foundations and institutions of higher education.”

But that’s not all! The site also inventories grant programs: for the moment 503 grant programs offered by foreign governments and French embassies abroad are listed, 280 of them for doctoral students and 121 for postdocs.

The search engine allows you to select the type of grant sought, level of study, subject area and country of origin.

CampusFrance is an organization formerly known as EduFrance, which has been in existence since 1998. It is described as a national agency for promoting French higher education in abroad. It is placed under the supervision of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, the Ministry of National Education and the Ministry of Higher Education and Research.
