If I am selected as a Chateaubriand Fellow, are there any restrictions on when I can go to France?

Yes, if you are selected as a Chateaubriand Fellow for the 2017-2018 academic year, your stay in France must start between September 1, 2017 and April 30, 2018. Written approval from the Office for Science & Technology is required if changes in your research plans require that you leave prior to or after these dates.
