France Chicago Center

The France Chicago Center (FCC) is devoted to fostering, promoting, and increasing fruitful intellectual exchange between the University of Chicago and France, and to increasing awareness and appreciation of French culture, art, and thought within the University community and beyond.

It pursues these goals through structured initiatives—graduate workshops, fellowship and travel grant competitions, public lectures, visiting scholars, and a collaborative research seed-funding program in the sciences—and by working closely with students, faculty, and University-based partners to develop and support France-related grassroots initiatives.
