Community College in France


The Community College in France initiative offers community college students with a strong interest in cultural exchange, the opportunity to study abroad and experience life in France.

The Community College in France initiative is a part of the Transatlantic Friendship and Mobility Initiative, a joint commitment between the U.S. Department of State and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs to increase and diversify student mobility between the U.S. and France.
