The Chateaubriand Fellowship

The Chateaubriand Fellowship is a grant offered by the Embassy of France in the United States. It supports outstanding Ph.D. students from American universities who wish to conduct research in France for a period ranging from 4 to 9 months. Chateaubriand fellows are selected through a merit-based competition, through a collaborative process involving expert evaluators in both countries. The program is divided into two sections: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics & Health) and HSS (Humanities and Social Sciences).

To be eligible, candidates must be currently working on their Ph.D., be enrolled in an American University, and obtain a letter of recommendation from their advisor in the U.S., as well as a letter of invitation from a professor affiliated with a French university or research institution.

Benefits include a monthly stipend, health insurance for the entire duration of the fellowship, and a round-trip ticket to France.
