Scholarship Programs That Cover More Than Just Tuition Fees Part II.

Last week, we wrote about scholarship programs that offer a whole lot more than just the tuition fees. In this miniseries of articles we shall continue to introduce you to some of the best scholarships the world has to offer.

The Eiffel Excellence Scholarship Program

This program is available to those up to the age of 30 years and wish to do their master’s degree and for individuals up to the age of 35 for PhD. The program is aimed at individuals from the developing nations for the masters degree and those from developing and industrialized countries for PhD. The chosen ones receive money towards their monthly expenses, health insurance and some money towards cultural activities. However, the program does not cover tuition fees but offers a return air fare. In any case, the tuition fees in France is quite minimal and comes to under 250 Euros per year for the masters degree and under 400 Euros per year for those doing their PhD.
