Fully Funded Scholarship at Université Côte d’Azur for International Students in France, 2018

Country of Study: FranceInstitution/ University: Université Côte d’Azur (UCA)
Application DeadlineSunday 11th March, 2018Level of Study: Ph.D
 Université Côte d’Azur (UCA) is offering exceptional candidates 5 fully-funded fellowships to begin no later than October 2018.  The objective is to recruit and support the most academically qualified and promising early-stage researchers worldwide who are developing a research program involving one or more laboratories within UCA.
Université Côte d’Azur (Université Côte d’Azur) is a recently created cluster of higher education establishments on the French Riviera that brings together the major players in higher education and research on the Côte d’Azur. Université Côte d’Azur aims to develop a new, 21st-century model for French universities, based on new interactions between disciplines, a new form of coordination between research, teaching, and innovation, and strong partnerships with the private sector and local authorities. In January 2016, Université Côte d’Azur won a prestigious “IDEX” award from the French government for its UCAJEDI project, placing it among the top 10 world-class, comprehensive universities in France.
Scholarship Sponsor: Université Côte d’Azur (UCA)
Scholarship Benefits: 
The Doctoral Program of Excellence offers fellowships consisting of an annual service-free contract with a gross salary of 2500 € per month, guaranteed for a maximum duration of three years. This comes with support of up to 1500 € / year to defray the costs of participation in international conferences or workshops.
In addition to this financial support, UCA considers the awarding of a fellowship from the Doctoral Program of Excellence as a highly significant accomplishment. When relevant, other professional or academic opportunities will be made available to the selected doctoral candidates.
Field/Area of Study: Courses offered by the University
Type of Award: Full Scholarship


The Doctoral Program of Excellence is intended to be a recruiting tool to help UCA attract outstanding students entering doctoral programs. Current students already in one of the UCA member institutions will therefore receive lower priority than students graduating from other institutions.

Applicants may have received a Master’s degree, but should not have yet been awarded a doctoral degree. Students who have not yet completed their Master’s degree by the application deadline but who may nevertheless be ready for a Ph.D. program — as attested to, for example, by the completion of significant undergraduate or master’s level research — may also apply (see below). They would be eligible to receive a doctoral program of excellence fellowship only after proving that they have completed their master’s degree.
Applicants who have previously been considered but who received a grade of B or C during the selection process are not allowed to re-apply in the subsequent session.
A potential supervisor can only support one candidate. A candidate may only apply with one research project and one supervisor.
Research projects must follow French and European regulations on ethics issues in order to be eligible for funding. In particular, projects involving activities aimed at human cloning for reproductive purposes, or intended to modify human genetics in a heritable manner, or aimed at creating human embryos for the sole purpose of research, cannot be funded. All applications involving other ethical issues will be required to declare them and to provide additional information and documentation.

Instruction on Application:

Applicants are expected to present a research program in coordination with a potential supervisor affiliated with one of the research teams of Université Côte d’Azur.
Applicants should upload the following documents (as PDF or JPG files):
  • The filled Application Form (A)
