The Institut d'Études Politiques de Paris (English: Paris Institute of Political Studies), often referred to as "Sciences Po", is a highly selective Grand Établissement in Paris, France. Sciences Po has traditionally educated France's political and diplomatic elite, but its academic focus spans not only the political and economic sciences, but also law, communications, finance, business, urban policy, management, and journalism.
"Sciences Po" created the Emile Boutmy scholarship after the founder of Sciences Po (1871) in order to attract the very best international students from outside of the European Union. The Emile Boutmy Scholarship is awarded to top students whose profiles match the admissions priorities of Sciences Po and individual course requirements.
The Financial Support Office administers a variety of scholarships and award schemes. Altogether 1M€ was awarded to non-european students in 2009 out of a total of 2.1M€.
Eligible students are those from a non-European Union state, whose household does not file taxes within the European Union, and who have been admitted to the Undergraduate or Master's programme.
Students who are not eligible are:
- Swiss and Norwegian applicants, since they may be entitled to CROUS scholarships
- Candidates who have dual citizenship, including from a European Union state
- Candidates from Quebec (since they may take advantage of sliding scale fees same as European applicants)
- Dual-degree candidates
- Third-year Ph.D. programme students (thesis)
- MPA candidates, since they may apply for the MPA scholarship
The Emile Boutmy scholarship may be supplemented with various scholarships offered by the French government.
This scholarship is awarded based on factors of excellence and according to the type of profile sought for this programme. Social criteria are also taken into account.
This scholarship is not automatically awarded. A request for it must be made in the section designated for the purpose on the application form.
