Use the following resources to find funding for your research and exchange programs.

Campus France

The Campus France grant search engine, run by the French Embassy, is a great place to start the search for funding a research trip to France. Several prominent scholarship programs for U.S. students are highlighted on the website. In the past, Northwestern graduate students have had success with the Chateaubriand fellowship and the Fulbright.

Mary Isabel Sibley Fellowship

In addition to the grants listed on Campus France, the Mary Isabel Sibley Fellowship may be of interest to graduate students.

The annual Mary Isabel Sibley Fellowship, which carries a stipend of $20,000, is awarded alternately in the fields of Greek and French. Candidates must be unmarried women between 25 and 35 years of age who have demonstrated their ability to carry out original research. They must hold the doctorate or have fulfilled all the requirements for the doctorate except the dissertation, and they must be planning to devote full-time work to research during the fellowship year that begins September 1st.
