Project applications must be submitted by December 15th, 2007. Funding decisions will be announced in March 2008 for the Academic Year of 2008-2009.

The Partner University Fund (PUF) was created in May 2007 to promote innovative partnerships in research and higher education between French and American institutions of higher learning and research.

With a budget of 1.4 million USD allocated for its first call for projects, PUF aims to fund lasting partnerships in all disciplines in order to promote sustainable academic cooperation and mutual understanding between France and the United States.


PUF supports emerging transatlantic partnerships over a three year period, subject to annual review by the selection committee. Partnerships may combine elements such as: joint initiatives in research and
publications, faculty and postdoctoral mobility, collaboration in teaching, shared programs, joint and dual degrees at the master’s and Ph.D level.
