The French Ministry of Higher Education and Research awards need-based grants to French citizens and some foreign students, usually those who have lived in France for at least two years

French universities

Some French universities offer grants and financial assistance to international students. You should enquire about opportunities with your chosen institution.

Your own country

You might be able to find study abroad funding from local government or companies based in your home country. A good way to find out is to contact your local government office or find their website and see what they recommend.

Also, research large companies in your home country that might offer study funding assistance and contact them about opportunities. However, it is worth considering that they may require you to return home after your studies to work for them.

Student loans

Some countries have student loan programmes available to citizens of that country to help studying abroad, for example India, but do often have limitations.

International scholarships

Independent companies or organisations might offer scholarships, and these will be entirely separate from individual universities. Various scholarship portals and internet sites will list these opportunities.
