Transitioning to Virtual Exchange - Call for Proposals


Call for Proposals

International education and study abroad have been severely impacted by the current pandemic. In response, FACE Foundation, the French Embassy in the US and the US Embassy in France will be supporting institutions which are creatively maintaining French-American collaboration by integrating virtual exchange or other types of global learning in their curricula. Projects need to be implemented collaboratively by at least one US and one French institution of higher learning or international education provider and demonstrate why they have the potential to boost study abroad after the pandemic.

We especially encourage projects that will be part of a credit-bearing course. We will consider virtual exchange projects (including COIL) as well as any co-designed or co-taught content giving students an international perspective on their field. Initiatives strengthening existing partnerships or developing new ones, such as co-hosted faculty networking and match-making leading to virtual exchange is another high-impact practice we can support. You want to do a triangulation project with a third, ideally francophone, country? Wonderful! This call is designed to help realize your ideas in this unusual times.

The grant funds may be used for project-related expenses, which include salary in support of time needed for developing the course. Grants will be in the amount of up to $7500 per project.

The application form and more information are available via the Face Foundation.
