Opening of the GDF SUEZ / MAEE Programme selection campaign
The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Ministère des Affaires étrangères [MFA]) and GDF SUEZ have decided to create a programme to host and support high-level foreign students in France. The programme is renewed for the 2013-2014 academic year.
The co-financed GDF SUEZ / MFA scholarship programme for the 2013-2014 academic year is aimed at students from Brazil, Chile, India and China who are currently studying in their country. Only applicants who are citizens of one of these four countries are eligible for this programme. A good command of French is an important advantage in the selection process.
For the 2013-2014 academic year, five scholarships will be awarded. The application deadline is March 15th 2013, and the results will be announced no later than April 30th 2013.

Master Renewable Energy (Chilean an Chinese students)
Master Water, Air, Pollution Energy at local regional scales (Brazilian students)
Master Conception Management of complex computerized systems (Brazilian and Indian students)
This year of studies in France will end with an internship at one of GDF SUEZ’ sites.
GDF SUEZ will give those selected for this programme, among other things, a scholarship of €13,000, tutoring during their year in France, and a possible career opportunity.
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.
The Ecole Polytechnique will guarantee support for the recipients before their departure and during their stay in France, including: preparation for arrival in France, option to take intensive French classes in France during the summer before the scientific classes begin, assistance with administrative formalities upon arrival in France, reservation of on-campus housing at the institution.
