The STEM Chateaubriand Fellowship targets outstanding PhD students enrolled in an American university who wish to conduct part of their doctoral research in a French laboratory for a 4 to 9 month period. The Office of Science and Technology 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.
STEM Chateaubriand fellows are selected through a merit-based competition. Priority is given to candidates working toward a “double degree” (cotutelle) with their host institution.
All Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) and Health disciplines are eligible. The required level of French remains at the discretion of the host laboratory.
The application deadline is January 31, 2014, for a stay which can begin from September 1, 2014 to April 1, 2015.
