Two universities in Texas and Oklahoma have been awarded a France on Campus Award!

Congratulations to European Horizons, student organization at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX who won the 1st prize of the competition with its project "Le Nouveau Chapitre: The Role of France in the 21st Century Geopolitics", and to the University of Tulsa French club, with its project "Franco-Osage Relations". They are part of the ten 2019/2020 France on Campus Awards winners.

The France on Campus Award program, created by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, is aimed at American student organizations eager to produce creative France-relative projects on their campus while introducing new audiences to French culture. Projects can explore all fields, including (but not limited to) visual arts, design, cinema, music, performance, food, journalism, publishing, science, and technology. 

As the first place winner, European Horizon will be receiving a grant of $2,000 to implement its project. In addition, it will receive, along with the 9 other winners, mentorship support from a GoFundMe representative and from a representative of the French Cultural Services, two annual subscriptions to TV5 Monde, as well as invitations to selected events organized by the French Embassy and/or consulates for the academic year. An Award Certificate signed by the Cultural Counselor of the French Embassy in the U.S. will be presented to the winners following the completion of the project.
