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 awards 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 Isabelle mistral (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Benjamin Spector (email@example.com).
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
passes the first step but failed the second one are
eligible for one of our 2 fellowships, depending on academic
background and performance on written and oral exams.
- Appplicants in linguistics can apply either for the ENS cognitive
science master's program, cogmaster (which contains a
linguistics track) or some other master's program in linguistics in
Paris, such as the lingmaster.
- Other applicants have to apply to the cogmaster program
- IMPORTANT: Applicants must apply for the relevant master's program,
*independently of the international selection application procedure*.
Applying for the international selection procedure does not remove the
need to apply simultaneously for a master's program.
- every applicant who applies for the International Selection in
cognitive science or linguistics should inform Benjamin Spector and
Nathalie Marcinek by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org,
