Scholarships for Cubans in France: Here are the requirements

The Embassy of France in Cuba, in cooperation with research institutes from Cuba, Guadeloupe, Martinique and LMI El Dorado French-Mexico, with the aim of developing training and research activities, has designed a scholarship project funded by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

According to the website of the French Cooperation in Cuba, a call has been launched, until April 4, to fund mobility in French universities and institutions, primarily to pursue a master’s degree (one to two semesters) and in second place to conduct a research residence, always for those under age 35 years old.

The call states that projects submitted should have a “One Health” approach. In addition, for master’s scholarships, the student must apply directly to the French university of interest.

Courses are available at This catalog Applications are submitted directly to the universities. In the selection by “Field of Activity”, the categories “Agriculture and Animals” and “Sciences” are the most suitable for the search for Master’s courses. Applications from students who have not started the registration process will not be taken into account.

This project has an important dimension of capacity development, by training not only Cuban students, but also professionals, technicians, researchers and administrators, in the technologies developed in the project.

This project aims to create a regional network of actors and institutions that brings together French reference centers (Institut Pasteur, IRD and CIRAD) and their Cuban counterparts (Instituto Pedro Kouri, CENSA, CIGB) to promote the exchange of knowledge and technologies.
