Depending on your profile you can either choose Service Civique or Erasmus + Traineeship.
Service Civique is a program funded by the French Government, dedicated to young people aged 18-25, nationals of one of the European Union countries. If you wish to apply to this programme follow this link: http://www.ofci.fr/faire-son-service-civique-a-lofci/
Service Civique pays a revenue of 573 EUR per month which can be used for food and accommodation. Extra money can be required to the French government. The program does not cover transportation costs from and to your country. Service Civique in OFCI can last from 6 to 9 months.
Do you believe it is complicated to apply? Actually it is very simple. Once you are selected by our organization we will be the ones in charge with requesting the grant from our local government and we will deal with the administrative parts.
Erasmus + Traineeship is a programme supporting students currently enrolled in higher education institutions in European Union (and former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey) at Bachelor and Master level as well as for doctoral candidates. The opportunity is also open to recent graduates. In OFCI we select trainees for a period of minimum 3 months up to 12 months which is the maximum period you can get funded for. The Erasmus + grant is a contribution to your travel and subsistence costs and extra funding is available for traineeships. The amount may vary depending on the country where you come from, the number of students applying for a grant, the distance between countries and the availability of other grants. For more information you can contact international or Erasmus+ office of your higher education institution.
