Emile-Boutmy Scholarship for International Students, France

Sciences Po created the Emile Boutmy scholarship after the founder of Sciences Po (1871) in order to attract the very best international students from outside of the European Union. The Emile Boutmy Scholarship is awarded to top students whose profiles match the admissions priorities of Sciences Po and individual course requirements.


Eligibility requirements
Eligible students are those from a non-European Union state, whose household does not file taxes within the European Union, and who have been admitted to the Undergraduate or Master's programme.

Students who are not eligible are:
• Swiss and Norwegian applicants, since they may be entitled to CROUS scholarships
• Candidates who have dual citizenship, including from a European Union state
• Candidates from Quebec (since they may take advantage of sliding scale fees same as European applicants)
• Dual-degree candidates
• Third-year Ph.D. programme students (thesis)
• MPA candidates, since they may apply for the MPA scholarship

The Emile Boutmy scholarship may not be supplemented with the Eiffel scholarship.
This scholarship is awarded based on factors of excellence and according to the type of profile sought for this programme. Social criteria are also taken into account.
This scholarship is not automatically awarded. A request for it must be made in the section designated for the purpose on the application form.

Undergraduate programme: Amount and length of the scholarship

The Emile Boutmy programme can take several different forms for students on the undergraduate programme. The length of the scholarship is always dependent on scholarship recipients' academic results; they must be ranked within the top half of students within their year group.
1. A tuition grant of 7300€ per year for the three years of the undergraduate programme, in addition to a grant to cover part of the cost of living of €5000 per year.
2. A tuition grant of 7300€ per year for the three years of the undergraduate programme.
3. A grant of €5000 per year to cover tuition fees for the three years of the undergraduate programme.
4. A grant of €3000 per year to cover tuition fees for the three years of the undergraduate programme.

If the scholarship recipients' academic results are not within the upper half of their year group at the end of the second semester of the first year, they will forfeit their right to the scholarship for the second year.

If the scholarship recipient is within the top 10% of his year group at the end of the first year, he/she is eligible for a tuition fees grant as well as for a grant to cover living costs for the second year of study. This comes in addition to the tuition fees grant. Only students having requested this grant will be considered.
During the year abroad (third year of the undergraduate programme):

Scholarship recipients who are among the top 50% of students in their year group at the end of their second year will retain their tuition fee grant during their year abroad.

For those students awarded a grant to cover living costs in their second year, a grant to cover the costs of the stay abroad will be provided if deemed necessary and if the destination justifies.

Masters level: Amount and length of the scholarship

The Emile Boutmy programme can take several different forms for students at Masters level. The length of the scholarship is always dependent on scholarship recipients' academic results; they must be ranked within the upper half of the students within their year group.

1. A grant of 10000€ per year to cover tuition fees for the two years of the Masters, in addition to a grant to cover part of the cost of living of €6000 per year.
2. A grant of €10000 per year to cover tuition fees for the two years of the Masters.
3. A grant of €5000 to cover tuition fees for the two years of the Masters.

Scholarship recipients will forfeit their right to the grant if their academic results are not with the top 50% of students within their year group at the end of the first year.
