Description

The "Concorde" scholarships were set up in 2011 and extended to expire by a partnership agreement between the French Embassy in Gabon and the Gabon National Bursary Agency (ANBG). The program aims to enable an annual contingent of 90 Gabonese students to pursue studies in France.

Students selected under the program benefit from the dual status of scholarship holders from the French (BGF) and Gabonese governments.

Students who have completed a first cycle of higher studies in Gabon for a period of two or three years and who wish to enroll in a master's or doctorate cycle in a large French public school or university are eligible.

The cooperation and cultural action department of the French Embassy and the ANBG sit equally on a mixed committee for the preselection of files.

The ANBG undertakes to submit the list of candidates selected by the pre-selection committee to the Technical Commission of the ANBG.
