Documents et Registration

The Ambassadeur program

The French Ministry of the Armed Forces awards 2 postdoctoral fellowships every year as part of its "Ambassador" program.

The aim of the program is to finance a 12-month stay abroad for a postdoctorate engaged in a research project on security and defence issues. The call is open to all fields of human and social sciences (geography, economics, political science, law, etc...).

The programme is scientifically monitored by the Institut de Recherche Stratégique de l'École Militaire (IRSEM).

These fundings are part of the Higher Education Pact plan and aim to contribute to regenerating the pool of university research in the fields of defence and security.
