Harriett G. Jenkins Pre-doctoral Fellowship Project
The NASA Harriett G. Jenkins Pre-doctoral Fellowship Project (JPFP) was developed in 2000 with a mission to increase the number of underrepresented persons with master's and doctoral degrees in the NASA pipeline, and ultimately in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce.
Each year the project supports up to 20 fellows. For ten consecutive years, JPFP has employed a holistic approach to graduate student preparation by successfully addressing the need for supporting, mentoring, coaching and nurturing students during their graduate school experience.
This holistic approach, coupled with professional development training, undoubtedly makes the JPFP one of the most unique and competitive graduate fellowship programs available.

How To Apply
The application is available on the Chateaubriand website:
The deadline to apply is January 31, 2014 for fellowships starting any time between September 1, 2014 and April 1, 2015.
The Chateaubriand Fellowship in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM), offered by the Embassy of France in the United States (Office for Science and Technology - OST), supports young scientists who wish to conduct part of their doctoral research in a French laboratory for a 4 to 9 month period.
The Chateaubriand Fellowship aims to initiate or reinforce collaborations, partnerships or joint projects by encouraging exchange at the doctoral level. To that end, the OST supports PhD students who are registered in an American university and participating in a co-supervised PhD with a French university. Priority is given to candidates working toward a "double degree" (cotutelle) with their host institution.
The OST will 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. Knowledge of French is not mandatory. All STEM and Health disciplines are eligible.
For more information, candidates and American/French research teams can contact the OST in Washington, DC:
