Established in 2007 as a collaboration between the French government, American private donors, and the FACE (French American Cultural Exchange) Foundation, the Partner University Fund (PUF) supports research partnerships in all disciplines between two or more American and French institutions.
Partnerships must focus on advancing both research and education areas such as :
Faculty, postdoctoral, student mobility and exchanges
Joint research initiatives
Joint classes and curricula
Creation of joint and dual Master and PhD degrees
Since its creation, PUF has supported 71 partnerships involving more than 80 French and American institutions.
PUF funds up to 60% of the cost of a project in the Humanities, a maximum of $100,000 annually per project. In all other fields, PUF funds up to 30% of the project cost, a maximum of $50,000 annually per project. The exact grant amount awarded each year depends on the outcomes of a yearly progress review.
The call for projects is usually opened in October each year.
