Financial aid for international mobility

Depending on the destination and the student’s financial and social situation, it is possible to apply for a grant. It provides assistance, but does not cover all costs.

Whether for an internship or a study stay, funding is available to help students implement their international mobility project.

Please note that this funding does not under any circumstances constitute a full payment for your mobility. However, it will constitute an additional source of income, which is welcome in the context of your project and mobility.

Basic principles

  • Non-cumulation of international mobility grants
  • Declaration of all external aid that the student is likely to receive
  • Application of a common criterion: the family quotient, recognized and required by all the organizations providing funding to Université Paris Cité*.
  • Students with a family quotient (FQ) higher than €35,000 are not given priority for the allocation of mobility grants.
  • Regardless of the aid requested, it is imperative to be registered with Université Paris Cité at the time the application is submitted.

* Family quotient: taxable income from the tax notice to which the student is attributed divided by the number of shares appearing on the tax notice.

Selection criteria

  • Social situation of the student
  • Taking into account the destination Europe / outside Europe
  • Student status: scholarship holder on social criteria or not, paid internship or not…

Conditions for granting and disbursing international mobility grants

  • The application for mobility does not automatically entitle the applicant to financial assistance.
  • The International Relations and Strategy office, in agreement with the Scholarships Commission, reserves the right to decide on the granting, duration and amount of financial aid, in accordance with the obligations set by its funders.
  • The first monthly installments of aid are paid after departure, after registration at the host university (proof to be sent to Université Paris Cité).
  • By submitting an application form, the student automatically applies for all the grants eligible for your mobility (studies or internship).
