Entente Cordiale Scholarships

Set up in 1995, at the time of the Franco-British Summit, the Entente Cordiale Scholarships scheme is designed to promote higher education, to encourage contacts, and to increase exchanges between France and the United Kingdom. The aim of the scheme is to challenge preconceived ideas by putting them to the test against the realities of life in France and the United Kingdom, at an age when impressions and friendships are made for life. The Entente Cordiale Scholarships are financed by the private sector and by charities and provide for outstanding students to undertake an academic year's study across the Channel.

The scheme is designed for British nationals, able to work in French, who wish to proceed to further study, postgraduate research, or postdoctoral work in all fields of knowledge in a French institution, university, or 'Grande Ecole', and who expect to graduate in 2001 with a Bachelor's or Master's Degree, or who are working towards a Ph.D. Degree at a UK university.

The Scholarship is awarded for one academic year. The annual award for the Scholars recruited for 2001-02 will be £8,000 in Paris and £7,500 outside Paris. These amounts cover lodging, food, travel, and books. Registration and tuition fees are paid by the Trust (maximum FF80,000). Please note that this Scholarship is not available in conjunction with any other scholarship, financial help, or paid employment.

Application and reference forms can be downloaded from the Entente Cordiale website (http://www.francealacarte.org.uk/entente/), or are available from Entente Cordiale Scholarships, Service Culturel de l'Ambassade de France, 23 Cromwell Road, London, SW7 2EL (tel. 020 7838 2055, fax 020 7838 2088, e-mail entente.cordiale@ambafrance.org.uk).
