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), supports young scientists who wish to conduct part of their doctoral research in a French laboratory for a 4 to 9 month period.
The Chateaubriand Fellowship aims to initiate or reinforce collaborations, partnerships or joint projects by encouraging exchange at the doctoral level. To that end, the OST supports PhD students who are registered in an American university and participating in a co-supervised PhD with a French university. Priority is given to candidates working toward a “double degree” (cotutelle) with their host institution.
The OST will provide a stipend of up to 1,400 €/month (depending on other sources of funding) and cover the cost of travel and student health insurance. Knowledge of French is not mandatory. All STEM and health disciplines are eligible.
The application is available on the Chateaubriand website: http://www.chateaubriand-fellowship.org
The deadline to apply is February 1, 2013 for fellowships starting any time between September 1, 2013 and April 1, 2014.
