Calls for Proposals

- Chateaubriand
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 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:, 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.

- Partner University Fund (PUF) PUF launched its first call for projects in September 2007 with the objective of supporting innovative and sustainable partnerships between French and US institutions of research and higher education.
