The French Embassy in Tunisia is repeating its scholarship program to fund engineering study mobility in France under a double degree. The French Institute in Tunisia (IFT) announced this on its official website on Monday.
This scholarship program is open to Tunisian engineering schools that have signed a partnership agreement with a French engineering school and benefit from the support of the Tunisian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MESRS). This takes the form of scholarships to finance engineering studies in a two-tier degree in France.
It complements the Tunisian government’s scholarship program. And its aim is to support inter-company cooperation by financing mobility at the level of engineers.
This program will allow selected candidates to complete a two-year study at a French engineering school. They will be sanctioned by obtaining two engineering degrees, one French and the other Tunisian.
In this context, candidates with Tunisian nationality are only eligible, with the exception of French-Tunisian citizens with dual citizenship.
Therefore, in 2021-2022, they must be enrolled in the second year of the engineering cycle at a Tunisian engineering school, which for 2022-2023 uses the support of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to fund mobility for the dual degree of engineer / engineer in France. They will thus have to be admitted to the French School of Engineering for 2021-2022 as part of an inter-company cooperation enabling them to obtain two engineering degrees at the end of their studies, one in French and the other in Tunisian.
This applies to all areas related to engineering. The duration of the scholarship is twenty-two months beginning in September 2022.
As a result, the selected candidates will receive: a monthly allowance of € 700; payment of a return ticket (Tunisia-France-Tunisia); social security and supplementary mutual insurance coverage; coverage of registration fees with a ceiling of EUR 5 000 per year; and exemption from visa fees. The costs of the TLS are the responsibility of the scholarship holder, who will, however, be exempt from the fees for applying to Campus France.
Registration by June 30, 2022
In order to respond to the call for applications, engineering schools must send a table by 30 June 2022 listing the candidates accepted by the French host institution, which can be downloaded from the IFT website.
Candidates are ranked by merit and specialization. At the same time show those who have already been identified. In order to use the scholarship from the Tunisian government for the beginning of the school year 2022.
In addition, this table must be duly completed, signed and stamped by the head of the engineering school, returned by Excel to Ms Imen Annabi ([email protected]) and sent in paper form to the IFT.
Finally, the list of successful candidates will be published during the first half of August on the website of the French Institute in Tunisia.
