CNRS-L​ Doctoral Scholarships​​




​Typically, all admitted PhD students receive fellowships consisting of full tuition waiver and a monthly stipend. Once a PhD admission application is submitted on the Online Graduate Application portal, the applicant is automatically considered for fellowship. No further application form is needed to apply for the fellowship.
​Recipients of the CNRS-L/AUB scholarship will have, for up to three years, part of their monthly PhD stipend covered by CNRS-L and will be partially relieved from fellowship related duties to focus on their research.
Applicants must hold the Lebanese nationality and a master’s degree with an average of at least 85/100 (or equivalent) and must not exceed the age of 30 in the first year of the scholarship. Additional selection criteria apply including research theme alignment with CNRS-L priorities.
Applications are submitted to the Graduate Council once per year after an announcement email sent to all active PhD students at AUB.​
