Three different kinds of scholarships can be obtained:
- Two-years scholarships. These scholarships are financed by the consortium (A*Midex foundation) can be obtained after a selection procedure only by the students who apply for joining the program at the M1 level (1st year). These scholarships are given to the selected students during their 2-years Master studies.
- Outgoing scholarships. These scholarships, also funded by the A*Midex foundation, are offered to the self funded students (the students who don’t have two-years scholarships) when they spend a semester (except the 4th) out of France (Karlshuhe or Barcelona).
- Mobility Erasmus+ scholarships. Self funded students can apply to this kind of scholarship when they go to Barcelona or to Karlsruhe.
The candidates applying to the Europhotonics-POESII Master apply for a two-years scholarship. Depending on their ranking in the reserve list, the students who are not selected for the scholarship can have the possibility to be enrolled as self funded students.
Scholarship candidates must have already obtained a first higher education degree (bachelor) or demonstrate a recognized equivalent level of learning according to national legislation and practices. Most students who apply are currently enrolled for their last year or session of a BSc or BEng program or equivalent. In this case the original version of the diploma will be asked after selection.
Two years scholarships will be given to the selected candidates during 2 years according to their ranking (based on academic level, CV, recommendation letter(s), letter of motivation) after the selection procedure. The number of available scholarships will depend on the budget. The candidates in the reserve list (not selected for the scholarship, but selected to participate to the program) will have the possibility to join the Master program as self-financed students and benefit from other scholarships.
