In the ISblue framework, an action is engaged to encourage international mobility. It is a financial support for the 2022-2023 academic year. Incoming mobility financial support is for students who want to carry on a research project in France, in one of the ISblue research laboratories.
The projects have to follow one or more ISblue research theme.
The incoming mobility grant is targeted to students in second year of Master’s degree (postgraduate).
The applicant must:
– Have a mobility project in France for an internship (3 to 6 months) as part of his educational program,
– Have a mobility project to carry out collaborations with one of the ISblue laboratories
– Have a project that follows one or more ISblue research themes
The financing will be awarded only when the hosting agreement will be signed by both parties and by the director of the ISblue welcoming laboratory.
N.B. Scholarships will only be attributed for internships. Incoming mobility regarding missions during an internship will not be considered (for instance, 10 days of missions during a 6-month internship).
The mobility grant will be awarded according to the following scale (maximum).
A lump-sum amount of 200€ per month, at the discretion of the jury (based on the cost of living in the country of origin), to what a travel cost package will be added, according to the origin of the candidate:

Zone 2 (Northern America): 800 €
Zone 3 (Central and Latin America / Africa / India): 1 000 €
Zone 4 (Asia / Oceania): 1 400 €
For instance: for a 3-month period, a student coming from Brazil, will received a grant of: 200×3 + 1000 = 1600 euros.
