The IEC and Ecole Normale Supérieure offer several international
Masters' fellowships, for a duration of two years. ENS offers 30
fellowships in all academic disciplines (including cognitive science)
and IEC offers 2 fellowships specifically in cognitive science and
linguistics. The amount of the monthly stipend is 1000 euros. IEC will
award its 2 fellowships on the same basis as ENS, i.e by means of a
national competitive exam known as the "ENS international selection".
In order to be eligible for either fellowship, interested students should thus apply
for the ENS “International Selection”, either in cognitive science or
linguistics. Interested students who are not sure whether they meet the eligibility
requirements for the ENS International Selection should contact
Applicants are selected in two steps: first, they have to submit a
file containing all the relevant academic information (step 1).
Second, some applicants are selected to take part in written and oral
exams in Paris (step 2). There are two separate tracks, one in the
Humanities and one in the Sciences. Students can be admitted into our
department through either track, as both include a major in cognitive
science. Interested students should contact Benjamin Spector in order to determine which track is
more appropriate for them. Students who will have passed the first
step but failed the second one will be eligible for one of our 2
fellowships, depending on academic background and performance on
written and oral exams.
