The monthly allowance is payable in France and is not taxable. Grant recipients benefit, inter alia, from the same social benefits available to French students (Social Security, access to university restaurants, lodgings on campus, etc). Expenses related to possible travel within France, required for properly carrying out the work intended, may be reimbursed, subject to the prior agreement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
On account of the benefits generally offered by the receiving institutions for such training or study courses, it is clearly stipulated that no subsidy shall be provided for whatsoever reason (attendance fees, charges for laboratory use, help with publication, etc).
