Study grants

Study grants funded by the Institut Pasteur International Division enable scientists working in an institute of the Institut Pasteur International Network to attend courses taught at the Institut Pasteur in Paris and training workshops or other courses run within the Network.



Study grants for scientists from the Institut Pasteur International Network: Calmette and Yersin program


These grants are used to promote and facilitate access of scientific staff from the Institut Pasteur International Network (students, research scientists, engineers and technicians under contract) to courses taught at the Institut Pasteur in Paris and training workshops run by a member institute of the International Network, or any other course recognized by the International Division.


The program can be related to any theme developed in laboratories at the Institut Pasteur and the International Network, such as infectious diseases (infectious pathophysiology, immunology, microbiology, epidemiology, virology, parasitology), public health activities (surveillance, resistance) and quality assurance.

The training must be important to the research agenda being followed. The aim of the course will be to top up the applicant's initial training and consolidate skills in the given research field.


For courses held at the Institut Pasteur (Paris), applicants should register online for Institut Pasteur courses and apply for a study grant from the International Division. The Course Committee shortlists applicants then the Grant Selection Committee decides which applicants are eligible for funding based on the course's relevance to their training and their position within the institute, as well as its relevance for the home institute as a whole.


For courses held within the Institut Pasteur International Network, the relevant organizers should be contacted to apply for funding.

Target audience:

Biologists, doctors, pharmacists, veterinarians and research scientists and students working in an institute belonging to the International Network.


Funding dependent on the length of the training or course attended.


For courses taught at the Institut Pasteur (Paris), funding covers living expenses (€1,100 gross per month) and tuition fees but not travel expenses which are funded by the applicant's home institute.

For courses held within the Institut Pasteur International Network, funding covers the cost of most of the tuition, travel and living expenses.

Calls for applications:
