China Scholarship Council (CSC) Grants

The University has an agreement with the Chinese Academy of Sciences for the creation of CSC scholarships enabling Chinese students and researchers to come and carry out all or part of their PhD research in the laboratories that belong to the University's institutions. This scheme is also open to young PhDs wishing to do a 1-2 year post-doctoral fellowship as well as to researchers (staff) at the beginning of their career wishing to spend 6 to 12 months as visiting scholars in one of the University's laboratories.

Chinese candidates from other universities can apply for CSC scholarships for a 1 to 2 year period of scientific study in one of the University's laboratories in the framework of a "joint PhD".
