The objective of this programme is to provide US students from American institutions with the opportunity to gain research experience through a minimum two months Internship at INRIA. This programme enables the supervision and training-through-research of US students by researchers from the INRIA project-teams. It provides them with financial support for their living expenses in France. These internships at INRIA contribute to the scientific, professional and personal development of interns. Several activities are proposed in order to optimize the overall cultural and scientific experience of the US students.
