Chateaubriand Fellowships: Humanities & Social Sciences

September 14th, 2013 in Opportunities

Chateaubriand Humanities & Social Sciences (HSS) is a fellowship program offered by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the US. It targets outstanding Ph.D. students from American universities who seek to engage in research in France, in any discipline of the Humanities and Social Sciences. HSS Chateaubriand fellows are selected through a merit-based competition, through a binational collaborative process involving expert evaluators from both countries.

HSS Chateaubriand grantees are applicants who answer the program’s criteria of excellence and whose sojourn in France will support the program’s philosophy. The HSS Chateaubriand fellowship program’s purpose is to foster bilateral cooperation at Ph.D. and research level, and to build and strengthen bridges between our two nations.

Candidates must be currently working on their Ph.D. Candidates do not have to be U.S. citizens, but they must be enrolled in an American university. However, French citizens are not eligible to apply. Candidates must obtain a letter of recommendation from their advisor(s) in the U.S., as well as a letter of invitation from a professor affiliated with a French university or research institution. Please be in touch with your supervisor in France as early as possible. The history of the research relationship will be taken into account in the review process.

Three types of fellowships:

1) Fall Fellowship: 4 months, starts October 1st.
2) Spring Fellowship: 4 months, starts February 1st.
3) Year-long Fellowship: 8 months, starts October 1st.
