The Embassy of France is likely to offer scholarships to students wishing to study in France, most often for the Master level.

In partnership with Tanzanian universities, the Embassy of France also finances, at PhD level, ‘alterning’/’sandwich’ scholarships. The research then takes place in Tanzania and in France, with the funds from the Embassy financing the part taking place in France (usually three months per year during three years).

People wishing to apply for a scholarship have to contact and fulfil the application procedures with the universities of their choice in France. A master’s (or PhD) admission letter has to be provided with all scholarship applications. The letter does not guarantee entitlement to a scholarship: the number of candidates applying is much higher than the number of available scholarships.

The next selection will take place in 2017.
