French Embassy Fellowships

The French government is offering scholarships to help cover the cost of conducting research in France. The fellowships are available for current Ph.D. students; those who have received their doctorate in the last three years may also apply for the science/technology fellowships. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and registered in a university in the U.S. Both fellowships cover health insurance and a round-trip ticket to France. For information on campus about the scholarships, contact the French Institute for Culture and Technology, 573-3550.
