Well being research: Quite a few scholarships to finance research

Regional scholarship, settling-in help or employment contract: There are many ways to finance a health degree, whether it’s medicine or naturopaths.

Participation in health studies can involve significant costs that must be reckoned with. But don’t panic, there is help and scholarships to finance it.

Medical, dental and pharmacy students have access to social criteria grants awarded by the Crous. However, the same does not apply to allied health students reporting to the regions (except in Normandy).

There are also special grants such as the public law commitment contract or grants in return for settling in an areawhich can help the most precarious students to finance their studies.

Regional scholarships for social or paramedical health education

As the government website explains, Scholarship applications for health, social or paramedical training (plus state examination as a midwife and masseur-physiotherapist) are managed by your region.

To benefit from this, you need to check with your academic region as each has its own dates and conditions. Only the Normandy region sends grant applications for these training courses through the Crous.

Territorial Conditional Scholarships for Health Students

It has also existed since 2009 the CESP (Public Service Commitment Contract). The student of medicine or dentistry receives a monthly allowance of 1,200 euros from the fourth year of study, for which he undertakes to practice at the end of his training in a specific location “which is characterized by insufficient care or difficult access to care”. More than 4,100 CESPs were signed in 2021.

On the same model and additional several scholarships for medical and paramedical studies were created directly by the communities in return for the caretaker’s settlement on the territory at the end of his training.

A form of incentive response to the lack of medical staff in some cities and regions. We can name the community of communes Villes-Soeurs, the city of Brive (19), the Centre-Val de Loire region, the departments of Nièvre, Aude, Haute-Garonne or Vienne…

The city adds “privileged access to housing,” “an interest-free loan to purchase premises, equipment, or perform work,” or even travel allowances during the internship.
