Institutional graduate and post-graduate scholarship competitions – Winter 2022

On January 5, 2022, the graduate and post-graduate scholarships portal will be open for applications for the following competitions:

Helpful hints

It’s up to you: follow the guidelines or have your scholarship application refused. For all scholarship competitions, it is important to follow the organization’s guidelines with respect to the writing and preparation of your application file. Otherwise, your application may be refused. The same applies for the institutional graduate and post-graduate scholarship competitions that are being held in January.

We have posted some examples of texts that comply with the guidelines for internal scholarship competitions on the ÉTS website. These examples may also be relevant to other competitions.

Be careful! Students sometimes submit the exact same application (e.g.: the same texts) to a competition that they submitted the previous year, without taking the time to verify whether the rules and guidelines for the competition have changed.

This unfortunate shortcut is not a prudent course of action, because if there are new rules or guidelines, these applications are not compliant, and are refused.

List of scholarship recipients 2020-2021

The list of graduate studies scholarship recipients is now available. It presents the contests for which the Dean of Studies office is involved.
