Fulbright Research Grants to France

, Share

The Franco-American Fulbright Commission, created by the Department of Foreign Affairs and the U.S. Department of State and co-funded by the two governments, has been managing the Fulbright program between France and the United States for over 70 years. Two of its alumni were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics (Kip Thorne) and the Nobel Prize in Medicine (Michael Rosbash) in 2017. Many other researchers have developed very successful bilateral cooperations through Fulbright stays.

In recent years, partnerships have developed with regional councils in France, offering opportunities for research stays in various fields for researchers at all stages of their careers (doctoral, post-doctoral and senior). As these are bilateral initiatives, the scholarships awarded come from American and French taxpayers.

Three calls for applications are open in the following regions:
Grand Est
Nouvelle Aquitaine
Hauts de France
