Financial Aid

ISA Lille and partner organizations offer several options for students in need of financial aid.

  • International Student Scholarships
    The French government offers many scholarship opportunities for international students. Check Campus Bourse for a list of grants, or contact your local Campus France office for more information. Many of these grants have early deadlines, so get informed as soon as possible.
    Some examples of our students' scholarships:
    You may also check for funding opportunities with your home country's Foreign Affairs or Education Ministry.
    Some examples:
  • Early Bird Scholarship
    Admitted students who confirm their enrollment before the set "Early Bird" deadline will automatically benefit from a scholarship covering 10% of their first year tuition fees.

    Learn more about the Early Bird scholarship for our Fall 2020 intake.
  • CAF – French Government Housing Assistance
    While living in France, all students may benefit from a monthly housing assistance payment which varies according to each student's situation. This benefit is paid by CAF (Caisse des Allocations Familiales) and students can only apply once they arrive in Lille. We will provide guidance and assistance to students interested in applying for this program. More information is available on the CAF website.
  • Interest-Free Loans
    ISA's Alumni Association and Board of Directors has set up a fund for an interest-free loan open to all ISA engineering students, at both the Undergraduate and Graduate level. This loan is based on the solidarity and generosity of our alumni.

    This interest-free loan, up to € 1,000 per year, is repayable in the three years following graduation. This loan is granted following a case-by-case administrative decision based on financial and academic criteria. Students who are enrolled and have already begun their studies at ISA Lille may apply at the beginning of the academic year.

    In the 2018-2019 academic year, this scholarship were awarded in October 2018 to select students who have been studying at ISA Lille for at least one year.
  • Academic Excellence Scholarship
    Students who show outstanding academic achievement during their studies at ISA Lille may be eligible for a scholarship. The amount and duration of these scholarships varies and is based on income. Students will be informed of these opportunities during the academic year.
  • Student Jobs & Paid Internships
    European students and international students with a titre de séjour étudiant are permitted to work up to 20 hours per week, giving students the opportunity to earn money while studying.

    In addition, all students doing an internship in France for 2 months or more must be paid a minimum of €551.25 per month(conditions may apply), giving students the possibility to save money during their internship periods.
  • International Mobility Grants
    ISA Lille students who choose to study abroad or complete an internship period outside of France may be eligible for one of several international mobility grants. Contact the International Relations Office for more information.
