Fellowship Research

Each fellow of the Tocqueville Fellowship must write a study, on their return from the United States.

During the admission interview to the jury, candidates are strongly encouraged to present the topic they would like to work on. The final subject will however be determined with the agreement of the sponsor.

The subject must be at the crossroads of thinking and acting. It should support their own cultural, media or political commitment. Therefore this is not a university type of memory.

In September, the fellows present to the sponsors and alumni the study they carried out during their stay. Their work also includes individual interviews with American specialists who are able to help them. The best reports have led to the launch of concrete and sustainable projects.
