The scholarships amount to 16,000 € and cover the tuition fees and living expenses for the two years of the Master's program. Application procedure and deadline are indicated in the dedicated page of each program.

Formation through research

The Master's program Nanosciences Nanotechnologies builds on the strength of the Grenoble research community to provide a strong formation through research. A significant portion of the second-year courses are taught by researchers of the partner institutes. The standard curriculum contains more than 7 months of full-time research internships:

In addition, the Research Intensive Training offers students the possibility of extending their internships with a continuous immersion in the labs in parallel to their courses, thanks to elective modules. Following this training, students can prepare actively a continuation in PhD.
