The Chateaubriand Fellowship in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics & Health for doctoral students aims to initiate or reinforce collaborations, partnerships or joint projects between French and American research teams. The Chateaubriand Fellowship supports PhD students registered in an American university who wish to conduct part of their doctoral research in a French laboratory.
This fellowship is offered by the Office for Science & Technology (OST) of the Embassy of France in Washington in partnership with American universities and French research organizations such as CNRS, Inserm and Inria. It is a partner of the National Science Foundation’s GROW program.
The OST and its partners provide Chateaubriand fellows with a monthly stipend of up to 1,500 € (depending on other sources of funding) for a 4-9 month period and support for travel expenses and student health insurance. All STEM and Health disciplines are eligible. The required level of French remains at the discretion of the host laboratory.
Dates: The call for applications is open each year from October to January for fellowships starting between September and April of the following academic year.
