French Embassy Partner University Fund (PUF) - Call for Projects

For the third year, the Embassy of France to the United States and France American Cultural Exchange (FACE) announced a call for project proposals of the Partner University Fund (PUF).

Here is a brief description of the Partner University Fund obtained from the website:

"Grants provided by the Partner University Fund support research and graduate education partnerships between French and American Universities with emphasis placed on novel, innovative and, when relevant, interdisciplinary approaches that involve exchanges across national and disciplinary boundaries.

Applicants are expected to develop new or deeper partnerships through the collaboration. The PUF Grant Review Committee will value, when applicable, evidence of institutional commitment to the development of joint or dual degrees even when the partnership starts with simple shared teaching and research exchanges.

PUF seeks to fund research and graduate education projects in all disciplines without exception. It also encourages interdisciplinary projects when relevant."

The application deadline of December 15, 2009 is quickly approaching but there is still time to submit a competitive application. You can learn more about the Partner University Fund
