Scholarship applications are open for the Charpak Exchange Programme 2016 (autumn session). This programme, organised by Campus France, is designed for exchange students for a period of one to four months (duration of an academic semester) at the bachelor’s or master’s degree level. The benefits include student visa fee waiver, monthly stipend of 615 euros for up to four months, medical insurance coverage (around 300 euros/year) and affordable student housing guaranteed, to be paid from the stipend.
To be eligible, you must be an Indian national and reside in India and not more than be 30 years old at the time of application. You must be currently enrolled at an Indian institution of higher learning that has a tie-up with the French institution where the applicant will pursue an exchange semester. Your application will be selected on the basis of your academic excellence, as well as the consistency and quality of your statement of purpose. There is no CGPA/percentage cut-off for the scholarship. Knowledge of French will be an asset but is not mandatory.
Your statement of purpose should explain why you chose the French institution to which you have applied or been admitted, as well as your future plans upon completion of the course. Explain why you would be a worthy candidate. The application deadline is May 15, 2016. Click here for details.
