The scientific climate on the border of Paris-Saclay is rich and esteemed: the University of Paris-Saclay from one perspective and the Institut Polytechnique de Paris offer preparation and oversight prospects covering the whole range of mathematics and their applications.

The Jacques Hadamard Mathematical Foundation (FMJH) offers scholarships to French or international students for one to two years. The part foundations of the FMJH support the Expert’s “Mathematics and Applications”. The Sophie Germain Scholarship is expected for students who wish to sign up for one of the Master’s programs in the first or second year (barring the “Preparing in Advanced Education in Mathematics” course).

A jury chooses the successful students by applying the rules characterized by the Scientific Council of the FMJH, in the very front of which is greatness. As the point of this program is to urge the ability of the young generation to seek research in mathematics, up-and-comers are welcome to take specific consideration recorded as a hard copy of their study project included on their document.
