The first 2019-2020 scholarship campaign began on Monday, January 14, 2019 and will end on Friday, March 8, 2019 at 18:00. Applications for scholarships must be submitted in person by appointment with the consular services. These files must be imperatively complete at the time of filing, on pain of a proposal for rejection in committee.It is also useful to inform the applicants that home surveys can be carried out by the consul. Any false statement will lead to a rejection proposal.

1- Who can benefit from school scholarships Scholarships for French children residing with their families abroad are granted to low-income families according to socio-economic criteria. Their goal is to contribute to the efforts of families who want to make their children benefit from French schooling. They are not a right to the extent that they are granted each year within the limits of the credits allocated to the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE). The scholarships are not paid to families but to institutions that deduct the amount of tuition fees owed by families.To benefit from a scholarship, the child must imperatively be registered in a school approved. For more information, it is necessary to consult the articles D531-45 to D531-51 of the Education Code. Disclaimer: Scholarships are awarded each year within the limits of the appropriations voted by the Parliament and thus opened in the budget of the Agency for French Education Abroad. Thus, each year, consular services have a delegation of credits (in euros) in which the proposals of the local commission must register. The schooling grants are therefore granted each year to families in order of priority according to their financial situation within the limits of available credits.

These ceilings are reviewed annually by the local commissions.3- How are scholarship applications processed? Two exchange campaigns are organized each year.

The site should be consulted for exact dates.1- The first campaign is for: those who apply for the renewal of scholarships granted the previous year to their child (ren) or residents in the electoral district and who are planning to send their child (ren) to a registered school at the beginning of the 2018 school year.2- The second campaign is reserved for: people who have arrived in the constituency after the end of the first campaign and are registered at the Consulate for this occasion or already installed in the constituency but whose family or financial situation has changed significantly since the end of the first marketing campaign or people asking for a review of the decision taken after the first marketing campaign.No request outside the criteria below above can not be presented during this campaign except in cases of force majeure.NB : The child must imperatively be educated in a school approved to request a scholarship during the second campaign.

4- Determination of the reference income (R) The reference income (R) is equal to: Annual net income (Rn) – tuition fees (Fs) 5- Calculation of the number of units (P) The number of units (P ) of the family is determined as follows: Parent of a two-parent family = 1Parent of a single-parent family = 1.5Child = 0.5 [3]

6- Determination of the family quotient (Q) The family quotient (Q) is equal to: Reference income (R) / Number of shares (P) .7- Determination of the weighted family quotient (Qp) The family quotient is weighted (Qp) ) of the Purchasing Power Parity Index (PPI) of the city of residence [4]: ​​(Qp) = Family Quotient (Q) x 100 (Paris basis) / IPA.8-Determination of the theoretical percentage of scholarshipIf the weighted family quotient (Qp) is greater than or equal to € 23,000, no scholarship is awarded (Excluding scale). If the weighted family quotient (Qp) is less than or equal to € 3,000 (Qmax / 7), the children can benefit from a scholarship (100%) covering all tuition fees.If the weighted family quotient (Qp) is between € 3,000 and € 23,000, the family benefits from a partial theoretical purse rate covering tuition fees and, where applicable, extracurricular fees, according to the following formula: (1 – ((Qp – 3 000) ÷ (23000 -3000))) x100) In order to contain the needs expressed world-wide within the strict limit of available credits, the theoretical portion of the scholarship awarded to families, benefiting from a partial quota, is reduced by a contribution progressive solidarity that does not concern 100% families.
