SPS Scholarships for Master students

Academic year 2022-2023

Saclay Plant Sciences (SPS)

The Saclay Plant Sciences network (SPS) offers scholarships for students enrolled in the teaching programs in its perimeter, which includes the “Plant Sciences” program of the Integrative Biology and Physiology Master’s degree (M1 and/or M2) (Université Paris-Saclay, Université Paris Cité).

General information

Up to 10 scholarships will be allocated each year.

The successful candidates will receive1:

  • in M1: 8000 euros
  • in M2: 6000 euros (to which will be added the internship stipends)

The students who are awarded a SPS scholarship in M1 and who are accepted in M2 will automatically be awarded the scholarship in M2.

Note for foreign students: 

The Université Paris-Saclay (UPSaclay) has an International Master’s Scholarship Program reserved for excellent foreign students entering France and accepted in one of the Master’s programs of the Université Paris-Saclay. This UPSaclay Scholarship Program is different from the SPS Scholarships detailed above on this page.

If eligible to the UPSaclay International Master’s Scholarship Program2 and based on excellence criteria, some candidates accepted in the “Plant Sciences” program of the Integrative Biology and Physiology Master’s degree will be proposed for a Université Paris-Saclay Scholarship by the coordinators of the Master’s program.

To be considered for the UPSaclay International Master’s Scholarship Program, foreign candidates should, therefore, apply to the teaching program of their choice before April 11th, 2022 (midnight).

The Université Paris-Saclay International Master’s Scholarship and the SPS Scholarship for Master students are not cumulative. Foreign students wishing to apply for a SPS Scholarship are encouraged to do so. However, if they are selected under the UPSaclay International Master’s Scholarship Program, their application to the SPS Scholarships will not be considered.

1 This scholarship does not include payment of registration fees.
2 See eligibility criteria on the Université Paris-Saclay website.
