The Barrande Fellowship Program offers scholarships for 2022 to support “cotutelles” (double-degree PhD) and short-term research stays. Students have to be registered either at a Czech University (for mobilities to France) or at a French University (for mobilities to the Czech Republic).

The scholarship-holder in "cotutelle" program undertakes a 5-month stay in France or in the Czech Republic every year for a maximum of 3 years. The program offers also grants to Ph.D. candidates for a short-term research stay (between 1 and 3 months). 

All scientific fields are welcome. Applications in the fields of environmental sciences, energy, mathematics and information technology are particularly welcome.
