Cultivating Talent

Students’ backgrounds should not limit the quality of their education or the full expression of their potential. In line with our equal opportunity policy, our scholarship program guarantees students the means to fulfill their ambitions. We are the path to success.

Cultivating Talent

Passports to the Master’s

We provide deserving, motivated high school graduates from disadvantaged backgrounds with 5-year scholarships, ensuring their financial autonomy from their first year of undergraduate work through the completion of their Master’s degree. The annual renewal of the scholarship is dependent on successfully passing their exams. Corporate donors working with us in this program can participate in the candidate selection process. They can also contribute to scholarship recipients’ professional integration via a mentor chosen from among their employees. This program is designed to respond to the inequalities of access to higher education and management-level employment.

Support student success at Sorbonne University: give them a passport to the future!
Degree candidates receive a scholarship of €10,000 per year, or €50,000 over five years. The financial commitment of the corporate sponsor, after the 60% tax write-off, amounts to €4,000 per year.

Wiem Zouali

“In discovering Sorbonne University during their open house, I was truly captivated, particularly thanks to their professor-researchers and PhD students, who were very available even outside of class. I have a strong attachment to the campus, even more so because I didn’t think I had much chance of getting in. When I was in high school, I applied for a Passport to the Master’s scholarship based on both financial need and academic merit. When my application was accepted, I interviewed with representatives of the Foundation, the University, and Safran, who funds these 5-year scholarships. I think that, beyond my good grades, it was my motivation and determination that convinced the jury.

In addition to the financial independence provided by this scholarship, which allows me to dedicate myself entirely to my studies, I have the added assurance of being able to count on the mentoring from a Safran employee. In regular exchanges, he answers all my questions, has set up an internship for me at his company, and has put me in touch with one of his colleagues who’s a specialist in data processing and analysis, the field I plan to go into. In the future, I’d like to participate in helping new students. For the moment, I’d say to any motivated high school students who aren’t sure about applying for a scholarship that they should stop underestimating themselves and throw their names into the hat, to give themselves the tools to reach their potential, because it just might change their life completely.”

Plur’ielles Passports to the Sciences

Despite the fact that young women have a higher success rate than young men in their first year of undergraduate work, young women are still a minority in our scientific programs. For example, they represent only 22% of the students in mathematics, 25% in the engineering sciences, and 26% in physics. Yet the corporate demand and professional opportunities are the same for them as their male colleagues. By covering the five years of study necessary to access executive positions, these scholarships encourage the most talented female high school students to pursue scientific studies.

Passports to the Olympics

For 30 years, Sorbonne University has been supporting top athletes to attain their dual project goals: sports and the higher education. They benefit from adjusted class schedules allowing them to reconcile the various training and competition constraints they encounter on a daily basis.

Every four years, there are Sorbonne University students selected to participate in the Olympic Games.

Today, Sorbonne University wants to support these high-level athletes to access the Olympic dream, in Tokyo in 2020 and Paris in 2024.

In order to reach optimum performance, these students need to complete their sports training through specialized practice sessions, medical care, recovery and recovery time. These costs represent an additional financial burden for high-level sports students.

The Sorbonne University Foundation therefore proposes to award scholarships of 3,000 euros per year to students enrolled in an Olympic project. This award can be applied to a new high-level sports student applying to the Olympic team.

Welcome to Sorbonne University's Faculty of Science & Engineering

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.


Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).

Our campuses offer different and unique experiences to our students, visitors and staff. Resources and support services are also available to ensure an equal chance at success to all.

Campus Life

In addition to the cultural activities and events organised throughout the year by our clubs and societies, the Parismus society organises numerous events, evenings and cultural visits that will help you discover France and its parisian life.
