Orange Scholarship Programmes

In order to contribute to skills development and to training people from different backgrounds, Orange supports scholarship programmes in France and around the world.
Orange Scholarship, a programme launched in 2008 and run by the ITN School, is a partnership between the French Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs and Orange (MAEE), together with 3 schools: ESIGELEC, ISEP and TELECOM Paris Tech.
The aim is to offer Indian students the opportunity to train in France (Master of Science at one of the three partner schools), with a scholarship award of 10,000 Euros.
Each student is offered a 6 month internship with Orange at the end of their training.
Each year Orange also supports a scholarship student as part of the INSEAD "endowed scholarship for emerging markets" programme.
