The application deadline for the Versailles Fellowship Program has been extended to Friday, March 16, 2012!
The Graduate School of the College of Charleston has a student exchange agreement with the Universite de Versailles/Saint Quentin which affords an opportunity for graduate students to teach English and do research at the universite located in the southwest suburbs of Paris. Entrance to the program is competitive, usually with one student being chosen per academic year. Application forms are available in the Graduate School Office, and the application deadline is March 16, 2012. 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.
