The scholarships will be awarded via a call to candidacy and the laureates will be chosen on the basis of the excellence of their file.

The call for candidates will be open on Monday, October 5th 2015 and will end on Monday, November 2nd 2015. More details regarding the call as well as the application form can be found on the OST website: http://www.france-science.org/-FADEx-.html


The FADEx (French-American Doctoral Exchange) program is an annual event that was created in 2014 by the Office for Science and Technology (OST) of the Embassy of France in the USA. This program aims to encourage scientific exchanges between American and French Ph.D. candidates studying a similar scientific field and, in so doing, favor the creation of future French-US scientific collaborations. This program also provides the opportunity to the American students to understand and appreciate the French system of research.
