Outstanding UCLA Seniors are invited to apply for the Michel David-Weill Scholarship. The Scholarship supports an exceptional student to study for two years for a Master’s degree at Sciences-Po in Paris. As instruction at Sciences-Po is multi-lingual and many courses are in English, knowledge of the French language is not required, though candidates should be enthusiastic about acquiring it during their tenure on this scholarship. One scholarship is awarded nationally.

The scholarship carries a monetary value of $80,000 spanned over two years and covers the full cost of attendance at Sciences-Po (including tuition and fees and housing and other living expenses). There are no constraints on the field of study except those pursuing the Master of Public Affairs and/or executive training courses are not eligible to apply. Candidates desiring to pursue a Sciences-Po Master’s program related to economics are especially encouraged.
