Fellowships in France: Apply by March 3
The Department of French announces two fellowships in France reserved for graduating seniors for the academic year

schools, the École Normale Supérieure (ENS) in Paris, and includes a free room, ENS library privileges and a card
of admission to any university course in Paris, including those at the ENS. The second fellowship is a teaching
assistantship in English language and American civilization at the Université de Dijon. The Dijon assistantship pays a
monthly stipend of approximately 1,150 euros after taxes, for 12 months (October-September), for nine months of
teaching (mid-September through mid-June), and assures free admission to courses at the University. Fluency in French and a formal written statement in French are prerequisites to candidacy for either fellowship. For the ENS fellowship, applicants should prepare a two-page proposal in which they describe their study plans for their stay in France. Applicants for the Dijon Fellowship should submit a two-page
statement describing the methods and materials they would use to teach a course on American culture and civilization. We invite all seniors to apply for either or both positions, but we ask the candidate to express a clear
