Stipends: Monthly stipend of 2,500 for postdocs, and of 3,000 for senior scientists.

Other allowances: Round-trip air fare from your country of origin to France, medical assurance, and administrative support in looking for accommodation.

What else you need to know: If you planned to learn French once in France, you will need some serious help with the language even before applying. Candidates need to complete a 10-page application form in French. Awardees also must write a 15-page report in French but not until the last month of the grant.

Deadline: 18 April 2008.
