The eligible fields of study are:

  1. Economics and Management
  2. Engineering (Master level) / Sciences in a broader sense (PhD level)
  3. Law
  4. Political Sciences

The Eiffel Program cannot be used at French-run master’s programs abroad or in connection with apprenticeship contracts or professional training contracts.

Students who have previously received an Eiffel master’s scholarship are not eligible to receive another at the master’s level.
