    • In Cambridge, visiting CamPo PhD students will be affiliated with the host department and provided with desk space (whenever possible and usually in a shared open space), a library card and access to Cambridge online resources. Students will be assigned a member of the faculty as their institutional point of contact. Visiting CamPo PhD students will be encouraged to play a full part in the academic life of the host department, through participation in seminars and interaction with faculty.

Funding

The CamPo exchange offers a fee-waver between POLIS and Sciences Po. There is no dedicated funding for exchange participants. Participants are advised to contact their institution (College and Department, Ecole Doctorale and Centres) to enquire about travel funds available to PhD students.

Cambridge and Sciences Po have an Erasmus exchange agreement, which this exchange scheme is a part of. Conditions apply to qualify for Erasmus support, in particular in relation to the length of stay (3 months usually); visiting PhD students at Cambridge whose first language is not English will also have to take and pass an IELTS test. As visiting Erasmus students, CAMPO PhD students will have access to all the institutional support provided by the Erasmus programme at Sciences Po or in Cambridge: they will be affiliated with a college and, subject to availability, they will be able to rent accommodation through the university/college). Participants should apply to their home institution to qualify for Erasmus funding prior to their departure.

NB. It is not yet clear whether Erasmus funding will be available for this exchange as the UK’s participation in Erasmus post-Brexit is yet to be determined.

Alliance Program

The aim of the venture is to pursue innovation in Education and Research between the four institutions by sharing knowledge, practices and resources. A laboratory for innovation, Alliance has become furthermore a major academic platform for transatlantic debate on global issues. Created in 2002, Alliance is an innovative academic joint-venture between Columbia University and three major French institutions: the École PolytechniqueSciences Po, and Panthéon-Sorbonne University.

The Alliance Call for Doctoral Mobility is intended to support and finance transatlantic research projects of the highest quality, in all disciplines, from doctoral students affiliated to one of the four partner institutions.

Doctoral students are encouraged to pursue their research abroad for a period of one to three months under the supervision of a host faculty member: students from the three French institutions can complete a research period at Columbia University while students from Columbia can complete a research period at the École Polytechnique, Sciences Po, or Panthéon-Sorbonne University.

Each project will be funded with a maximum limit of $5,000.
