Georges Lurcy Fellowship Program for Study in France

The Georges Lurcy Charitable and Educational Trust seeks to promote friendship and understanding between the peoples of the United States and France. This is achieved by supporting scholarly activities and exchanges which allow members of one society to learn more about the people and civilization of the other society. One dissertation fellowship will be awarded for one year in an amount to cover adequately educational costs, expenses of travel, and living expenses in France.  The student will be chosen without preference as to field of study or department, provided that the subject matter is uniquely French and requires study in France for an academic year.  Additional information about the Georges Lurcy Fellowship Program for Study in France is available here.

Deadline: Monday, March 27, 2017
