Students can apply for a scholarship (see here). The scholarships will be given to the students chosen after a selection procedure. A ranking of the students (Main and Reserve lists) will be made after the selection procedure.
The possibility to join the program as self-funded students (without scholarship) will be offered to all the students of the Reserve list.
Students can also apply directly for joining the program as self-funded students. The selection of the self-funded candidates will be based on the marks obtained in the previous academic education of the student, on the program of this academic education, on the quality of the university of origin and on the motivation and recommendation letters.
Self-financed students participate for free to all the initiatives of the consortium (spring school, welcome days, visits of labs/companies…) as the other students.
Self-funded students will be assisted by the staff in their administrative and practical issues (visa, housing, registrations, insurances…) as the scholarship holders.
Tuition fees: there are no tuition fees to be paid by the students (no matter if they are scholarship holders or self-financed students) who participate to the Europhotonics-POESII master program. See the section devoted to the Tuition, Registration and Living costs here.
Depending on the budget, a financial contribution can be offered by the consortium for the registration fees and the travel expenses.
