The Alliance Program is pleased to announce the 15 recipients of the Doctoral Mobility Grant for 2014-2015 (56 applicants).

Thursday, November 21, 2013

The Alliance Call for Doctoral Mobility is intended to support and finance transatlantic mobility for doctoral students affiliated to one of the four partner institutions. Doctoral students in all disciplines are encouraged to pursue their research abroad for a period of one to three months under the supervision of a host faculty member: students at the three French institutions can complete a research period at Columbia University while students at Columbia can complete a research period at the École Polytechnique, Sciences Po, or Paris Panthéon-Sorbonne University.
