France Fully-Funded Scholarships for Kenyan Students
The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Eiffel scholarship program has announced scholarship opportunities for Kenyan graduate students to study in France.
The Eiffel Excellence Programme announced scholarships for Kenyans wishing to pursue Masters and PhD programs.
The program’s organizers went on to say that the scholarships were intended for students from non-French-speaking countries.
“The goals of the programme are to train future foreign decision-makers in the private and public spheres in priority areas of study, and to attract applicants from developing countries to French master’s programs level and applicants from developing and industrialized countries to French doctoral programs,” read the statement in part.
