Call for Application for the academic year 2012-2013


The French Ministry of External and European Affairs (MEEA) and GDF SUEZ decided to institute a programme for hosting and supporting outstanding foreign students in France.

The co-financed GDF SUEZ / MEEA scholarship programme for the academic year 2012-2013 is for students hailing from Brazil, Chile, India and Lebanon, who are currently enrolled in academic courses. Only candidates holding the nationality of one of these four countries are eligible for this programme.

A maximum of six scholarships will be awarded for the academic year 2012-2013.

The deadline for the application is 11th May 2012 and the results will be announced latest by 20th June 2012.

The co-financed GDF SUEZ / MEEA scholarships will be given for a year of studies in France at Ecole Polytechnique for the second year of Master (to be précised by country). The candidates from Lebanon will have to precise in their application for which master’s programme they apply. If they apply for the two Masters, they have to indicate the order of their preference.

The year of academic studies will end with an internship at one of the campuses of the GDF SUEZ Group in France.

Candidates selected for this programme will receive, from the GDF SUEZ Group, a scholarship of 13,000 €, a tutorship during their academic year in France and may be given the opportunity to work with the Group.

The Embassy of France will bear the expenses of providing social security to the selected candidates, which confers on them the status of a French government scholarship holder and all the advantages that go with it (facilitation of visa
application process, etc.) as well as French courses ahead of their departure for France.

The scholarship holders of this programme will be accommodated at the campus of Ecole Polytechnique at Saclay.


The application for the scholarship should be sent at only.
