The Chateaubriand Fellowship in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM), offered by the Embassy of France in the United States, Office for Science and Technology (OST), aims to initiate or reinforce collaborations, partnerships or joint projects (PUF, MIT-France, France-Chicago, France-Berkeley, France-Stanford projects, joint or international labs, etc.) by encouraging exchange at the doctoral level.
To that end, the Chateaubriand Fellowship supports PhD students registered in an American university who wish to conduct part of their doctoral research in a French laboratory. STEM Chateaubriand Fellows are selected through a merit-based competition and priority is given to candidates working toward a dual PhD degree (cotutelle) with their French host institution.
Chateaubriand Fellows receive a stipend of up to 1,400 €/month (depending on other sources of funding) for a 4-9 month period and support for travel expenses and student health insurance. The required level of French remains at the discretion of the host laboratory. All STEM and Health disciplines are eligible.
More information and the application are available on the Chateaubriand website: http://www.chateaubriand-fellowship.org
The next call for applications will open in mid-October 2013 with a deadline of January 31, 2014 for fellowships starting any time between September 1, 2014 and April 1, 2015.
