Scholarships in France

At KEDGE Business School, we believe that funding issues should not prevent students from accessing the higher education of their choice abroad. Our doors are always open to those who wish to study and discover the world of educational excellence in France's major cities: Paris, Bordeaux, Marseille and Toulon. We are fully aware that a higher education diploma requires a strong motivation as well as personal and financial commitments. To help you apply for your dream programme and get your career off to a successful start, the school offers a series of scholarships to ambitious and talented international students from all over the world. We are eager to give them the opportunity to study in France and receive a high standard business education. International students may also benefit from other scholarships offered and funded by their home country.

Erasmus options

Erasmus+ is the EU's project to support education, training, youth, and sport in Europe. Every year, it offers international students the possibility to benefit from a mobility grant.

The Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters is a study programme that provides grants to the best students in the world, for one or two years, in any field of study. To benefit from it, the candidates must get their Master’s degree in at least two countries participating in the programme. 

Who can apply for KEDGE scholarships?

Only non-French (foreign) students applying for our International BBASpecialised MSc or Master in Management Grande Ecole are eligible. Exchange students from other schools and universities abroad cannot apply for this financial aid.


Exclusive KEDGE scholarships for international students

Academically gifted students can apply for merit-based grants: the Achievement Scholarship or the Academic Excellence Scholarship. Along with their applications, the candidates for Merit Scholarships will need to provide a motivation letter and proof of their achievements from their previous years of studies.

Both Merit Scholarships are allocated to exceptionally talented students. Your application will be assessed on two criteria: the grades obtained during your interview with our KEDGE experts team and your academic records (GPA, GMAT, GRE...).

  • Achievement Scholarship: €2000 discount on the tuition fees;
  • Excellence Scholarship: €4000 discount on the tuition fees.

The merit-based grants are non-cumulative (i. e. only one merit grant can be allocated per student) but can be combined with the Early Bird discount until the 28th of February 2023.

It is available for students from the United States of America, who hold a degree from a US university and wish to join the ISLI MSc programme. This grant is awarded in the memory of Kirsten Hoey, a talented alumnus of the ISLI. Each year, a selected number of American students with excellent academic records will receive a 50% discount on their tuition fees. To apply for this grant at KEDGE Business School, students will be required to submit an online motivation letter, which will be examined by Kirsten HOEY’s family and the MSc Director. 

The Kristen Hoey Scholarships cannot be combined with any other financial aid.
