FUNDING EDUCATIONAL BURSARIES
In 2009, Total began funding seven bursaries to enable Libyan students to study master’s courses in France. The recipients attend an eight-month intensive French language course, followed by a two-year period in the French university system. Total also allocates further international bursaries. Between 2007 and 2012, the Group funded around 40 Libyan students in the first or second year of an oil-sector engineering master’s course.
