The Chateaubriand Fellowship is a grant offered by the Education Office of the Embassy of France in the United States. Every year, it allows 14 doctorate students enrolled in American universities to conduct research in France for 9 months. This program has two main goals: To allow American doctorate students to benefit from an experience in a French University and to develop Franco-American academic partnerships. Chateaubriand recipients receive about 1300€/month, a round trip ticket to France, health insurance, and about 30 days per diem for travelling in France for research purposes.
