Applications are open for the Émile Boutmy Scholarship 2022. Sciences Po created the Émile Boutmy scholarship, named after the founder of Sciences Po, in order to welcome the very best international students from outside the European Union.

The Émile Boutmy scholarship fund benefits from the generous support of its sponsors (benefactors, companies and foundations) who are eager to allow the most deserving international students to study at Sciences Po. Private sponsors can be in direct contact with scholarship holders during official organised events.
