French nationals who wish to continue their education in the College of Europe may be able to receive a scholarship from the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs. This is a scholarship based on outstanding academic performance rather than social criteria. There are 20 scholarships available, with cover all or part of the annual cost of studying the College of Europe (which totals €23000 for the Bruges campus, and €21000 for the Natolin campus).
Students must hold a Bachelors degree, and must have completed their first year of their Masters degree in a European legal, political or economic discipline. All applicants must be between 18 and 35 years old at the time of application. Fluency in English is an essential. Candidates should also be free of military obligations and must not have received the scholarship before.
