These two students will benefit from a scholarship  jointly funded by the French Embassy in Lebanon and
Inria Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée.
A scholarship consists in an allocation of 5 500 euros. The beneficiaries will be considered as "Boursiers du Gouvernement Francais" with a package
including the social security coverage in France, the university registration fees, the visa fees, the airline ticket between Lebanon and France, and a priority access to university logging.
During the second semester, students commit to do their master thesis (internship) in one of the research teams at Inria Sophia - Méditerranée, see link .
Internship will be paid with a so-called gratification (about 550 euros per month during the 6 months).
