- Supporting French-American Cultural Exchange in Education and the Arts

French Dual Language Fund


The French Dual Language Fund is made possible by contributions from:

– Chanel, Inc.
– Alfred & Jane Ross Foundation
Private Donors

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, the French Dual Language Fund supports the expansion of bilingual education through the following initiatives:

• Support pedagogical projects in 200 schools ($150,000/year in grants).

• Allocate scholarships for 120 future teachers ($180,000/year in scholarships).

• Fund 75 interns from France ($70,000/year in stipends).

We have currently raised $1.4 million of our goal of $2 million to support these initiatives over the next five years. Additional support will enable us to further expand the impact of bilingual education nationwide.
