Scholarships and funding
Within the framework of its policy on university cooperation, the Embassy of France supports the mobility of Australian students to France.
The Embassy of France in Australia supports student mobility from Australia to France through the Nicolas Baudin Program, named for the French explorer and botanist who in 1802, at the same time as Matthew Flinders, charted the coast of New Holland (Australia).
This selective program covers the cost of the Laureates return flights and social security for their program of study, research or internship in France. As recipients of a French government grant, the Laureates are also exempt from paying the associated visa fees.
Two streams of application through the program are available: through the specific “Internship in France” initiative or through the general program.
- General program
- The “Internship in France” initiative
- The “Internship in Australia” initiative
- Results of the 2018 call for applications
- Testimonies from Nicolas Baudin grant awardees
Support for student mobility through the Baudin program is part of a wider range of tools available to support partnerships between French and Australian universities.
