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, or seek in a double degree (“cotutelle”) with France.
The application is available on the Chateaubriand website :
The deadline to apply is January 31st, 2011, and the fellowship can begin on any date from September 1st, 2011, to April 1st, 2012.
For more information, candidates and American/French research teams can contact Ms Pham at the Scientific Office in Washington: Phuong.Pham@diplomatie.gouv.fr, Phone : 1 202 944 62 20 / 62 50.
Note : a similar call for students in Humanities and Social Sciences maybe found on the same website, with a deadline on December 15, 2010.
