As part of the policy of educational excellence sought by HSH Prince Albert and the Government of Monaco, the system for granting scholarships has been supplemented to allow young Monegasque students at high-level international universities to benefit from lower tuition fees.
A list of these institutions of higher education has been drawn up using three internationally-recognised rankings: Academic Ranking of World Universities (Shanghai Rankings), QS World University Rankings (QS) and the Times Higher Education (THE) ranking,
This list of 62 international establishments was formalised by Ministerial Decree No. 2017-258 on April 21, 2017, the associated regulatory framework being specified by Ministerial Decree No. 2017-257 of the same date.
For these institutions, the state now determines the amount of the grant on the basis of actual tuition fees, with a state contribution ranging from 25 percent to 100 percent depending on the family’s circumstances.
Applications for scholarships must be sent to the Directorate of National Education, Youth and Sports by July 31, 2017, the deadline. The documents required to compile the file can be downloaded from the following links:
