Transatlantic Mobility Program

In May 2014 the U.S. Department of State and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated their support towards Franco-American student mobility through a joint declaration which led to the Transatlantic Friendship & Mobility Initiative. This joint declaration aims to strengthen the historic ties between the United States and France by diversifying and doubling the number of students from France and the United States studying abroad in both countries by 2025. Together with APLU and NAFSA, the Cultural Services and the Office for Science and Technology of the Embassy of France in the U.S. launch the Transatlantic Mobility Program with the aim to provide grants to colleges and universities which prioritize student mobility.

U.S. colleges and universities must play an essential role by establishing the necessary institutional partnerships, fostering research collaboration, integrating study abroad into degree programs, designing programs for nontraditional students, and developing cost-effective opportunities for all. The most competitive proposals will demonstrate how limited resources can effectively mobilize the greatest number of U.S. students to study abroad in France.
