Opening of the “Crédit Agricole International Talents” Selection Campaign

At the end of 2009, the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs (Ministère des Affaires étrangères et européennes [MAEE]) and Crédit Agricole S.A. decided to create a programme to host and support high-level foreign students in France. They are pleased to renew this programme for the academic year 2012-2013.

The co-financed Crédit Agricole International Talents scholarship programme for 2012-2013 is aimed at students from Hong Kong (China), Italy and Poland who are currently studying in their country. Only applicants who are citizens of one of these three countries are eligible for this programme.

For the 2012-2013 academic year, six scholarships will be awarded. The application deadline is 22 March 2012, and the results will be announced no later than 25 May 2012.

The Crédit Agricole International Talents academic scholarships are awarded for one year of studies in France at the Master 2, Master of Science, or specialized Master level, in the following fields:

-  Banking and Finance

-  Risk

-  Audit

-  Wealth management

-  Financial mathematics

At one of the following institutes of higher education (see the list of partner training/education):

-  Ecole Polytechnique

-  ESCP Europe

-  ESSEC Business School

-  HEC Paris

Université Paris - Dauphine

This year of studies in France will end with a paid internship at Crédit Agricole S.A. in France.

Crédit agricole S.A. will give those selected for this programme, among other things, a scholarship of €12,000, tutoring during their year in France, and a possible career opportunity with the group.

The French Embassy will take care of the grant for social and medical coverage for the recipients, giving them access to the status of French government scholar and the benefits thereof, as well as French classes before they leave for France.

Either the host institution or the Egide association will offer programme recipients a personalized welcome, support prior to departure and upon arrival to help them with the various administrative formalities, as well as help finding and reserving housing.
