I just found out I have been offered a Boutmy scholarship at Sciences Po!
After months of awaiting a scholarship decision, I’ve decided to post this announcement on my blog so that others may find it next year and know when to expect to find out about scholarship decisions.
After emailing them, I was initially told that I would hear about the Boutmy by late May. After late May passed, I emailed them again and was told late June.
I will be attending the Master in International Development program, 2014-2016.
TIMELINE FOR SCIENCES PO
February 12, 2013 – Completed my Sciences Po application, which included a request for the Boutmy Scholarship
April 17, 2014 – Received notice of acceptance
June 23, 2014 – Received notice of Emilie Boutmy scholarship acceptance
September 1, 2014 – Start date for classes in Paris
Note that these are the deadlines from my personal application process – the process may be different for others! (Acceptances occur on a rolling basis so they will almost definitely be different. However, all the Boutmy scholarships are released at the same time.)
Still working on your application for Sciences Po?
I can review your letter of motivation!
I’ve also written posts with some free tips on writing your motivation letter. And this post, which answers some questions sent to me from a Sciences Po applicant.
