Scholarship students are exempt from tuition fees. There are two ways to qualify for a scholarship:

  • Mines Paris is not on the CROUS list, as it is not under the supervision of the Ministry of Education, but of the Ministry of Finance. However, students whose parents declare taxes in France can benefit from a scholarship awarded directly by the school, whose criteria are similar to those of the CROUS. The scholarship application form must be sent to the School Office at the same time as enrolment, together with the required supporting documents.
  • International students whose parents do not pay income tax in France are eligible for a scholarship from the Fondation Mines Paris. The application form must be sent to the School Office at the same time as registration, together with the required supporting documents. It will then be forwarded to the Foundation.
