Thomas Jefferson Fund

The French Embassy and the FACE Foundation launched in 2017 the Thomas Jefferson Fund to support new collaborations and the most innovative projects between promising young researchers in France and the United States. The Thomas Jefferson Fund aims to foster forward-looking collaborative research in the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences, of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and of Science for Society that addresses the most pressing global challenges.

Inspired by the third American President’s commitment to strengthening French-American relations, the Thomas Jefferson Fund brings young talented researchers together to initiate or strengthen their collaborative research activities, co-organize conferences, and author joint articles for high-level publications, in order to achieve game-changing discoveries

The Thomas Jefferson Fund provides a unique framework to enable promising and innovative projects to reach their full potential and enrich French-American research collaborations.

The Thomas Jefferson Fund issues a yearly call for proposals and fund two-year collaborative projects led by two outstanding young American and French researchers at the beginning of their careers.

Grants will be awarded per funding cycle in each of the following fields:

• Humanities and Social Sciences (SSH) 
• Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)
• Sciences for Society (interdisciplinary STEM-SSH projects)

Each grant will amount to $20,000 over two years to be split equally between the French and the American teams. Co-financing from the researchers’ universities is encouraged to ensure the sustainability of these research partnerships.

These funds will support transatlantic mobility of researchers, collaborative research activities, the organization of international workshops or conferences, and the publication of joint articles.
