Concerning Erasmus Joint Master’s programs – the graduate program is eligible for this scholarship if both of theses conditions are met:
1) A minimum of one academic year (10 months) is spent in France
2) The first host university (upon arrivalà is in France
However, study abroad programs traditionally offered by French HEIs (summer, semester, or year-long programs) will cause the suspension of the monthly allowance. Health care will be extended by right throughout the European Union.
