Univérsité de Versailles/Saint Quentin Research/Teaching Fellowship
The Graduate School of the College of Charleston has a student exchange agreement with the Univérsité de Versailles/Saint Quentin which affords an opportunity for graduate students to teach English and do research at the univérsité in the southwest suburbs of Paris. Entrance to the program is competitive, usually with one student being chosen per academic year.
Graduate students at the College of Charleston may apply in the fall/early winter of each academic year for the program. Application forms are available in the Graduate School office. The application deadline is February 1. Applicants must be currently enrolled, degree-seeking master's level students in an established graduate program at the College, and must have excellent academic standing. The stipend for students is approximately $17,000, paid by Versailles, but the amount may vary, given currency exchange rates and stipend levels at Versailles. NOTE: While students will operate in an English-speaking environment, fellowship recipients will be expected to have good reading knowledge and speaking ability in French. Lack of French language ability can be corrected through intensive language courses and should not deter interested students from applying for this fellowship. Call 843.953.5930 for more information.
