Université Paris-Saclay has been a partner of the Chateaubriand Fellowship Program since 2016. This program, funded by the Embassy of France in the United States, offers grants to PhD students from American universities who want to conduct part of their research, for a period ranging from 4 to 9 months, at Université Paris-Saclay. It invites twelve students every year to carry out part of their thesis in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and health (STEM) and Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS).
In February 2019, Université Paris-Saclay welcomed the Chateaubriand Fellows from 2018 who are currently carrying out research in Université Paris-Saclay labs. This was the opportunity to share their experience of life and research in France, and more specifically at UPSaclay, and also to discover the university campus. At the end of the day, each laureate presented their work through poster sessions along with their supervisor in the UPSaclay lab.
