The student must be of French nationality and at least one of the two parents must reside in the consular district.
The applicant and the child must be registered in the world register of French people living outside France.

For families arriving from France, it is imperative to be in possession of a deregistration certificate from the Family Allowance Fund (CAF) of the last domicile in France. Please note, this document must be requested as a priority given the response times from CAFs.
Please note: applying for a scholarship and registering with the school are two different formalities.
How to apply for scholarships?
Pupils of French nationality, registered with the consulate, can submit a file in order to register a request for a scholarship.
Scholarships can cover part or all of the tuition fees as well as catering costs.
To do so, families must download the documents from the website of the French Embassy in Sri Lanka, here.
Once the file is complete, accompanied by ALL the necessary documents, it is essential to make an appointment with Mr. Arnaud Champy, Consul of France in Sri Lanka and the Maldives for the investigation of the file.
No file can be submitted to the school. The meeting with Monsieur Le Consul is compulsory.
The EFIC can however provide a paper version of the dossier if necessary. Please come and make a request to the secretariat.
