Doing research or studying in France


Faculty

A wide range of exchange programs are open to American and international scientists who want to do research in France. The programs support all levels of researchers by funding either mobility, research costs or French-American collaborative projects. 

 

Also, many French national research organizations offer short or long-term fellowships, as well as permanent positions. For more information, check out the Office for Science & Technology of the Embassy of France in the United States' website or contact us.
