Centers of Excellence

A number of Universities throughout the United States have been selected as French Embassy Centers of Excellence. They receive a fixed financial support on a yearly basis from the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S. If requested, they can also respond to a call for proposals and benefit from additional project-based support to fund a wide variety of activities and research.

A steering committee of independent French and American personalities from the world of higher education will examine proposals for new membership on a yearly basis.
