Scholarships

CyberSchool offers two types of scholarships:

  • Merit scholarship
  • Mobility scholarship

Both scholarships are based on the level of promise students demonstrate, regardless of their financial status.

The scholarships are eligible to EU citizens only.

No separate application form is needed. When you apply to the Master’s programme through the online application portal, you will automatically be eligible for the scholarship.

These scholarships apply to all the majors within Université de Rennes 1 CyberSchool Master’s programme.

Merit scholarship

A merit scholarship of €750/month covers the first year of the Master’s programme and may also partially cover the second year. The scholarship stops once students begin their internship or apprenticeship during the second year of studies as both generate a salary. Should the salary be below €750/month, the merit scholarship compensates the difference to up to €750/month.

Mobility scholarship

The mobility scholarship is a single payment of €1000 that is provided at the beginning of the first academic year.
