Students who followed a bachelor degree in Mathematics/fundamental computing out of the Fondation Sciences Mathématiques de Paris network or abroad can apply to this program. Can also apply students who already did a first year of Master.

This program is only available for students who can benefit from the French social coverage for students. Thus, for the next calls for applications (2017-2018), only applicants born after Octobre, 1st 1990 are able to apply to a M2 scholarship (or October, 1st 1991 for a 2-year scholarship)

Administrative and scientific support

Laureates benefit from a scientific supervision and a follow-up of their school results :

- Advice on courses : The laureates benefit from personalised advice from a lecturer at the Fondation Sciences Mathématiques de Paris who will be his/her tutor during one or two years. The tutor advises his/her student on what courses to choose, depending on his/her previous education and plans for further study. He can also gives advice on what to do after the first year of master and help his/her students consider the option of further study at the end of the master.

- Direction of studies : The Fundation and the director of studies regularly check on the scientific progress of PGSM students. Individual support, relying on doctoral students for example, can be set up on a case-by-case basis.

- For non French speaking students : Students' tutors may propose non-french speaking puipls to be helped in English, and may guide them to follow some trainings to learn French as a foreign language. It is wisely adviced for students who do not speak any French to undertake some intensive training before the begining of the school year, in their host university.
