When filling out the application you often are required to provide the name of a contact person at ESSEC.
You may also be required to provide a starting date and an end date.
Since the official school year in France starts on 1 September, you may indicate this as the starting date.
If you already know when you will actually start class at the end of August, then indicate the actual date.
For a two-year program such as the Grande Ecole MSc in Management, the end date should be 30 June of the second school year.
In case students must stay for a third year or a fourth year, it is unlikely that the scholarship be extended by the government.
