The French Institute for Demographic Studies (INED) has just announced that it will award 10 Doctoral Scholarships in France for the academic year 2022-2023. The PhD studentship is awarded to applicants of any nationality or age who are interested in pursuing their doctoral degree in France and who would like to study at one of the Institute’s partner institutions. These scholarships cover your expenses while studying in France, including tuition fees, living costs, and travel expenses within France or abroad. Winners are responsible for finding accommodation on their own, though INED can help them find suitable housing if needed.
The French Institute for Demographic Studies (INED) is a public research institute created by law in 1975, as an administrative and financial agency of Public Law. INED’s mission is to conduct scientific research on demographic processes and population dynamics, and to communicate those results to policy makers, professionals, researchers and to public opinion. It is also responsible for coordinating activities of demographic data collection at national level with its member survey institutes. Most importantly it provides research grants via PhD scholarships every year that are open to citizens of all nations globally.
Each scholarship is limited to candidates who:
1) hold or will hold a Master’s degree, at least equivalent to a Master 2 in France, from an accredited institution and
2) demonstrate exceptional performance by obtaining a high grade point average, around 3.70 out of 4.00 (depending on field), during their M1 or M2 years. Holders of a Magister awarded outside of France are required to have obtained equivalent grades (exceptionally high). The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is calculated as follows: your best 5 grades are added together; if your program has more than five courses, you take into account only your best five grades.
3) Application details
The awards are open to students of any nationality or age who hold a Bachelors Degree with honors. The chosen students will be awarded a tuition waiver and living expenses by Fondation Émile et Lili Delouche (Foundation Émile and Lili Delouche) while they pursue their PhD program. This scholarship is intended to support applicants from countries where access to higher education is limited, such as Sub-Saharan Africa, South America, Central Asia, Southeast Asia and other developing regions.

8) Tuition fees and payment plan options
There are a variety of options available. From apartments shared with other students to more isolated self-catered accommodation, you will have plenty of choice. Availability is generally high throughout France and prices vary depending on location. The more rural locations tend to be cheaper. Each organization has its own system for arranging accommodation but it is mostly based on first come, first served basis. Remember to contact them well in advance as it can take several months (sometimes years) before a placement becomes available, especially during peak periods such as summer or winter holidays and at certain times of year when French families take their annual vacation.
9) Accommodation options
There are a range of accommodation options available to PhD students living in France. Universities can help you find somewhere to live, but you may need to sign a contract with them before being allowed to do so. You might also be able to get shared accommodation with fellow students if you find somewhere yourself, or rent privately and share with other tenants (known as colocation). It’s worth noting that costs vary dramatically between regions, so it’s important to shop around. You should bear in mind that student grants will not cover all your living expenses, and many universities require their students to work part-time or take out loans and pay tuition fees upfront.
