Announcing France on Campus Award - The call for applications is open from now through November 22!

The French Embassy is pleased to announce a new grant which offers U.S. student organizations funding for campus projects. Are you eager to explore a new culture? Already have a passion for France? Want to share your enthusiasm for French culture with your campus community?

The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, in partnership with Kickstarter and OrgSync, have established the France on Campus Award under the patronage of film director Wes Anderson to celebrate and support initiatives that explore France in new and creative ways.

The France on Campus Award is intended to help student organizations eager to launch or continue a major France-related project on campus by providing a unique package of funding, mentoring and networking. With this support, awardees will be expected to expose new audiences to France and French culture on their campus and beyond.

The call for application is open until November 22, 2015.

The application guidelines are available here.
