Eiffel scholarship Implementation – eiffel scholarship program of excellence
2 – Housing allowance
- Private housing: If you are not living in a university residence but in private housing, you can benefit, at your request, from an additional housing allowance. You just need to send the receipt of the first rent payment mentioning your name and address and a copy of the housing contract within the 3 months following signature of the housing contract.
- Housing allowance amount: The amount of allowance, regardless of the location, is €115 per month.
Special case of students in Paris and the Paris region: since October 1st, 2003, students housed by Campus France in France in a regulated residence cannot benefit from the €115 housing allowance. The rent is already partly subsidized by the Eiffel program.
The amount of the subsidy depends on the residence.
- Termination of the housing allowance: If you decide to leave France during your studies or internships and leave your housing in France, the housing allowance will be suspended.
During a gap year, the housing allowance will also be suspended.
