IMDEA Scholarships

The IMDEA scholarship program is granted by the EMV Foundation (under the aegis of the “Institut de France”) and by the partners of the "Le Mans Université”, in Le Mans, France.

Scholarship winners receive the necessary financial support to pursue their studies within the IMDEA at the Le Mans Université.


Each academic year, 4 scholarships are awarded (2 in Master1 and 2 in Master2) by the IMDEA selection committee. Recipients are chosen among all the applications received before the deadline.


The annual amount of the IMDEA scholarship is 7000€ per student and per academic year.


 Selection is based on the 3 following criteria:


-          academic excellence (overall Bachelor grade and scientific test grade),

-          motivation

-          financial resources


 Any French or foreign student under 30 can apply by filling out the Scholarship application form which is included in the IMDEA application form. 


The IMDEA scholarship Terms and Conditions must be signed by all applicants.


The deadline to apply to the IMDEA scholarship is June 21, 2019.

Individual results will be given on July 8, 2019.


New in 2019! : OROSOUND Scholarship

In order to improve the gender balance in IMDEA (most of our applicants being male ones), a new scholarship will be offered next year to a female applicant.

Offered by the OROSOUND Company, this € 7000 scholarship will be granted for 1 year (Master 1).

Renewal in Master 2 will probably be possible under certain conditions (yet to be defined).   

Selection will be based on the same criteria as the IMDEA scholarship.

Female applicants can of course apply to both the IMDEA and the OROSOUND scholarship but can only be awarded 1 scholarship of course!

Note that only applicants who have reached the 3rd and last step of the admission procedure can apply to a scholarship (either IMDEA or Orosound).
