The selection of candidates and the granting of the fellowships is done based solely on the evaluation of the academic records of the candidates.
The application is done via the same online form than your application to a Master’s program. It is however necessary to tick a box indicating that your profile should also be considered for an excellence fellowship. Applications can be filled online from mid-November to the 15th of January, or from the 16th of January to the 15th of April. Candidates who need a visa are strongly advised to apply by the January deadline.
