The Paris Mathematical Sciences Foundation offers international students one or two year master’s scholarships in computer science or mathematics.
The foundation brings together around ten mathematical science laboratories and research organizations and brings together more than 1,200 researchers, including 5 Fields medalists, 17 Academicians, 120 national and international award winners. Unique in its discipline by its dimension and its scientific potential, it constitutes the largest concentration of mathematicians in the world and covers the entire spectrum of pure and applied mathematics, as well as fundamental computer science.
The selected laureates thus integrate the masters in mathematical sciences or fundamental computer science from one of the following universities or research centers:
- University of Paris,
- University of Sorbonne Paris Nord,
- University Sorbonne,
- University of Paris 1 – Panthéon-Sorbonne
- University of Paris-Dauphine
- École Normale Supérieure (ENS)
- Collège de France
- Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS),
They then benefit from a range of teaching that is unique in the world, drawing on all the skills of Parisian research laboratories in mathematical sciences.
The successful candidates selected for an M1 benefit from a scholarship of 12 months the 1st year and 10 months or 12 months the second year.
The winners will receive a grant in the amount of € 1,100 / month maximum: 600 / month + a flat-rate supplement of € 500 for housing assistance only (on presentation of proof).
The Paris Mathematical Sciences Foundation also takes care of their social security coverage under the student regime and their university enrollment rights.
For students of foreign nationality, the Foundation reserves a room at the CROUS in Paris and reimburses them the price of a return ticket per year from their country of origin to Paris (on the basis of an economic rate only).
The Foundation provides support to students and promotes their integration into Parisian life. She helps them with their administrative procedures, such as their enrollment at university, their visa application or medical care.

The remarks of mastere.tn
1- If your master is not in the drop-down list of the registration form, leave this field empty and specify your choices in your cover letter.
2- If there are not all the M2 specialization choices, leave this field blank and specify your choices in your cover letter.
3- If you have not received a confirmation email, then check your “junk mail”, your registration may not have been taken into account, you made a typo in your email. If you are unable to determine the source of the problem, contact them.
4- Your application validation did not work, did you fall back to the beginning of the form / to a blank page? We suggest you use Chrome or Safari web browser.
