It is with great pleasure that the FACE Foundation and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy invite you to participate in the second Call for Projects of the French Dual Language Fund.
A total of USD $150,000 will be distributed this year to fund projects that support French bilingual education in the United States, a priority of our educational cooperation.
Projects should focus on one of the following four funding 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 bilingual program, and more.) The examples given are intended to provide guidance, but do not represent an exhaustive list of possibilities.
