France on Campus Award: the deadline is coming...
Are you eager to explore a new culture? Already have a passion for France? Want to share your enthusiasm for French culture with your campus community?
The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, in partnership with Kickstarter, with support from NAFSA: Association of International Educators (NAFSA) and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), has launched the second edition of the France on Campus Award under the patronage of film director Wes Anderson, to discover, celebrate and support initiatives that explore France in new and creative ways.
This Award is intended to help student organizations eager to launch or continue a major France-related project on campus by providing a unique package of funding, mentorship and networking. With this support, awardees will be expected to expose new audiences to France and French culture on their campus and beyond.
The Call for applications is open until November 6, 2016. Projects can encompass all fields, including (but not limited to) visual arts, design, film, food, journalism, music, photography, performance, publishing, science, and technology.
The Cultural Services will select ten finalists to receive mentorship and networking support for their projects. The first and second place winners will receive $2,000 and $1,000 grants respectively, to cover the cost of implementing their projects.Think out of the box and bring France to your campus!
