Grant-holders in secondary and higher education may continue to receive their state grants for the duration of their studies at ISTOM. The application is to be made with the CROUS of the academic authority for the current year.

For the funding of long-term internships abroad, ISTOM has signed agreements with the General Council of Val d’Oise to take over part of the mobility costs of interns.

Scholarships such the ones granted by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Finance (FACE programme), the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie, the Association Solidarités Etudiantes may apply to some students.

Scholarships for foreign students

Scholarships for foreign students are mainly managed by two organisations which provide access to a commented list on their websites:

- CNOUS (Centre National des Œuvres Universitaires et Scolaires)
Sous-Direction des Boursiers Etrangers et des Affaires Internationales (SDBEAI)

6, rue Jean Calvin
B.P. 49
75222 PARIS CEDEX 05
Tel.: (01) 44 18 53 00
Fax: (01) 55 43 58 00

 - EGIDE (Centre français for l'accueil et les échanges internationaux)

28, rue de la Grange aux Belles
75010 PARIS
Tel.: (01) 40 40 58 58
Fax: (01) 42 00 70 08

EGIDE manages in particular bilateral scholarships granted by foreign governments by way of reciprocity in the exchanges of persons, within the framework of the bilateral agreements for cultural exchanges and scientific and technical cooperation, concluded by mutual agreement between France and the other countries.

These two organisations naturally provide an update on the scholarships granted by the governments (of the host country or of the country of origin), but they also give a number of other possibilities, without asserting it is exhaustive, inviting students to seek their own information.

Foreign students may apply to:

· International donors (AUF, FAO, UNESCO, PNUD, FED, etc.), provided that the organisation-specific eligibility rules are complied with, and the many foundations that may grant such support.

· Public or private companies which may take over the training costs of their employees, or even non governmental organisations (ONGs).

· And, depending on their country of origin, programmes of the European Union (between the EU Member States and participating countries, 31 countries are involved in the SOCRATES programme and its different sections). Detailed information available on the website of the European Union.
