The Chateaubriand Fellowship Program is a program intended for PhD students registered in an American university who wish to conduct their research in a French laboratory for a 4 to 10 month period. The Office of Science and Technology of the French Embassy will provide a stipend (1,400 Euros a month) and cover the cost of travel and student health insurance.
Priority will be given to the candidates who will seek a “double degree” (cotutelle) with the French host university. All disciplines in Sciences, Technology and Health are eligible. Knowledge of French is not mandatory.
The deadline to apply is February 1st, 2012, and the fellowship can begin on any date from September 1st, 2012, to April 1st, 2013.
