Does your youngster want to study in France? Here are a few scholarship options

By Tania Bagwan,

Here is a list of top 3 French scholarship programmes for Indian students.

The French Government has launched numerous scholarships for Indian students to pursue their higher education in France.

French is one of the most popular languages to learn not just in India, but also around the world. This language is not merely restricted to France, but is spoken as an official language or a secondary language in different parts of the world. Some examples for this would be Quebec in Canada, the African country of Senegal, Puducherry in India, etc. Apart from its reputation for being known as the most romantic language, it is an integral one for purposes of international trade and commerce. The French Government is making the language more accessible to foreigners through various programmes and scholarships aimed at equipping budding francophones to pursue the language further. If your teen has a keen interest in this language, here is a list of scholarships to consider applying for.
