I wish to inform you about the Chateaubriand Science fellowship 2012-2013, which may interest colleagues in your graduate school who have collaborations with French teams, or wish to initiate one.
The Chateaubriand scholarship program, organized by the Office of Science and Technology of the Embassy of France in Washington, is intended to finance the stay in France of American PhD students for a period ranging from 4 to 10 months, as part of a cooperation, and possibly a joint supervision ("cotutelle") leading to a dual PhD diploma.
Please find below, a message that you could forward to anyone who may be concerned.
I remain at your disposal for any further information.

The Chateaubriand Fellowship program is designed for doctoral students enrolled in an American university who wish to achieve part of their doctoral research in a French laboratory for a period of 4 to 10 months. The Office of Science and Technology funds the compensation (1400€/month), travel expenses and health insurance.
Priority will be given to candidates who seek to establish a joint direction of their thesis with a French host university. All fields of Science, Technology and Health are eligible. The required level of French remains at the discretion of the host laboratory.
The deadline for applications is February 1st 2012, for a stay which can begin from September 1st 2011 to April 1st, 2013.
