The Paris-Est University has been offering, for three years now, master-level grants in mathematics and computer science through the Labex Bezout. These grants are aimed at strong students currently in training outside of France and with minimal skill in French (intensive french training can be set up). The grants amount to 1200 euros per month, over 10 months, and fund the second year of the master degree. Since 2011, about twenty students, from all over the world, have been supported by this program and most of them are now pursuing PhDs in France or in their home countries.
For September 2014, 6 grants will be awarded. All practical informations are available from the Labex website: http://www.univ-paris-est.fr/fr/international-master-in-mathematics-and-computer-science-bezout-master/
APPLICATION DEADLINE: APRIL 25TH.
