Step Two: Complete your application and schedule an appointment

Visit the French Government Website to access financial aid application information. Complete your application and request an in-person appointment with the Consulate (within the applicable deadline) for in-person submission of your completed application. The consulate will not accept applications and documents sent electronically.

Step Three: Apply for Lycée Financial Aid

Please note that French families should apply for French Government and Lycée Financial Aid at the same time, and both applications must be completed in full for consideration. The Lycée Financial Aid Committee will not evaluate your application until a formal response to your complete application - either an award or a rejection - is issued by the French Consulate.

Visit the “Lycée Financial Aid” section to view the steps to apply for Lycée Financial Aid.

Step Four: Submit Consulate Decision Letter to the Lycée

Each family having applied will receive a letter from the French Government stating either the amount of aid to be provided by the French Government or the reason for rejection. Such a letter must be provided to the Lycée in addition to the package submitted to Blackbaud Financial Aid Management (Smart Aid) in order to become eligible for Lycée financial aid.
