TAFER Association

The TAFER association helps students and doctoral students to find funding for their studies, internships or theses. Projects of the TAFER association (www.tafer.fr) aim to offer as complete an inventory as possible of existing funding in France and to show students, in a friendly and fast way, the possibilities open to them.

Recently we have put a search engine online for research and study funding. This free service makes it easy to find fellowships in France through a personalized search, mainly for PhD students, but not only. If you want to get an idea of this project, I invite you to go watch on www.mabourse.fr.

In addition to our online fundraising service, our main goal is to provide training in this area so that undergraduate students are able to do effective research and grant applications on their own. The purpose of our training is to introduce students to the steps they must take to find personal funding.
