Annual Grant Program

We invite teachers and administrators of American K-12 public schools, school districts, state agencies who manage French dual language and immersion programs to apply for a grant in the amount of $1,000 to $10,000 to support a specific project aimed at promoting the objectives of the Fund. The project should address one of the four specific program areas:

1/ Creating or developing a francophone environment in your school (for example, purchase of books, DVDs, CDs, or games for the francophone section of your school library OR organization of a francophone event such as film screenings, workshops with children's or young adult authors, theater clubs, and more.)

2/ Adapted pedagogical material for the classroom (for example, curriculum supports such as software, DVDs, subscription to TV5, etc. for your French class or subject matter class adapted for French immersion, and more.)

3/ Professional development for teachers (for example, sending teachers to France to the CLA or CIEP, sending teachers to the CARLA summer institute, or supporting the facilitation of workshops with experts identified by the district or the school, and more.)

4/ Initial training or professional development for administrators (for example, participation by an administrator in a CARLA summer institute, supporting the school to invite external experts or consultants to provide council on development of the dual language program, and more).

Examples given are intended to provide guidance, but do not represent an exhaustive list of possibilities.

The grant will not cover electronics or consumable stationary supplies. We will privilege projects that impact students year after year.
