Chateaubriand Fellowship Science Program
The Embassy of France in the United States (Office for Science and Technology - OST) launches the Chateaubriand Fellowship Program which is intended for young American scientists at the doctorate level, wishing to conduct their research in a French laboratory for a 4 to 10 month period.
The Chateaubriand grants aim to initiate or to reinforce collaborations, partnerships or joint projects (for example PUF, MIT-France, France-Chicago, France-Berkeley, France-Stanford, etc …) by encouraging exchange at the doctoral level. The OST will support American PhD students (or PhD students registered in an American university) who engage in a co-supervised PhD. Priority will be given to the candidates who will seek a “double degree” (cotutelle) with a French University
The OST will provide a stipend (1,400 Euros a month) and cover the cost of travel and student health insurance. Knowledge of French is not mandatory. The level of French required is at the host institution’s discretion. All disciplines in Sciences, Technology and Health are eligible.
The application is available on the Chateaubriand website:
The deadline to apply is February 1st, 2012, and the fellowship can begin on any date from
September 1st, 2012, to April 1st, 2013.
