For greater clarity, the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs is introducing a single application procedure for its Eiffel Scholarship and Eiffel Doctorate Scholarship programmes.

The new Eiffel programme thus covers two types of course:

* Master's postgraduate degree course
* Ten-month co-tutored or co-managed component (preferably second
or third year) of PhD course

The objectives of the Eiffel excellence programme run by the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs remain unchanged. The first is to offer French higher-education opportunities for future public- and private-sector decision-makers in three priority areas: science; economics & management; and law & political science. (The Eiffel programme does not address students seeking careers in teaching or research; other programmes are available for students in these situations.) The second objective is to reach students from emerging countries (with priority on Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and new members of the European Union), though the PhD
scholarships also address students from industrialized countries.
