Chateaubriand HSS Fellowship Program

Humanities & Social Sciences

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 for a period ranging from 4 to 8 months. HSS Chateaubriand fellows are selected through a merit-based competition by a jury of expert evaluators from both countries.

The Chateaubriand fellowship program allows young scholars to broaden their experience and networks by spending several months at a French higher-education institution. The fellows will be able to engage in dissertation research and to interact with a French mentor and scholars.
