I wish to inform you about the Chateaubriand scholarships 2013-2014, which may interest colleagues in your graduate school who have collaborations with French teams, or wish to initiate one.
The Chateaubriand scholarship program, organized by the Office of Science and Technology of the Embassy of France in Washington, is intended to finance the stay in France of American PhD students for a period ranging from 4 to 9 months, as part of a coopereation, and possibly a joint supervision ("cotutelle") leading to a dual PhD diploma.
Please find below and attached, a message that you could forward to anyone who may be concerned.
I remain at your disposal for any further information.

The STEM Chateaubriand Fellowship program targets outstanding Ph.D. students enrolled in an American university who wish to conduct part of their doctoral research in a French laboratory for a 4 to 9 month period. The Office of Science and Technology provide a stipend of up to 1,400 €/month (depending on other sources of funding) and cover the cost of travel and student health insurance.
STEM Chateaubriand fellows are selected through a merit-based competition. Priority is given to candidates working toward a “double degree” (cotutelle) with their host institution. All Sciences, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) and Health disciplines are eligible. The required level of French remains at the discretion of the host laboratory.
The deadline for applications is February 1st 2013, for a stay which can begin from September 1st 2013 to April 1st, 2014.
