The Victor Hugo scholarships for Latin Americans are a device created by the UFC with the financial support of Grand Besançon Métropole that aims to promote university exchanges with French, Spanish and Portuguese-speaking Latin America, Central America, South America and the Caribbean. . This scholarship allows beneficiary students to study for one year in a master’s program offered by the Université de Franche-Comté.
Located in eastern France, near Switzerland, the Université de Franche-Comté (UFC), founded in 1423, is one of the oldest university institutions. This institution currently has around 30,000 students, of which 24% are international students.
DURATION OF THE VÍCTOR HUGO SCHOLARSHIP
The Victor Hugo scholarship is awarded for one year, without the right to renewal.
INTENSIVE TRAINING IN FRENCH
The Victor Hugo scholarship includes intensive training in French during the two months preceding the start of the academic year (July and August) in order to allow scholarship recipients to improve their language skills in French.
