Sciences Po’s doctoral candidates have a strong connection with international research.  

For example, the Doctoral School and Sciences Po’s Centre for the Americas recently created an American doctoral scholarship program.  Each year, ten of our PhD candidates are hosted by social science research centres at major North American universities.

PhD candidates can also complete a joint doctorate with Columbia University (New York), Northwestern University (Chicago) or the Max Planck Institute (Cologne).
