We are delighted to announce that the 2019 Call for Proposals of the Thomas Jefferson Fund is now open until March 5, 2019 | 12:00pm (midday) EST.

This program, launched by the Embassy of France in the United States and the FACE Foundation, aims to encourage and support cooperation among the most promising young French and American researchers, and foster forward-looking collaborative research projects.

Each selected French-American project will receive up to $20,000 over a period of two years.

Applications are accepted in the three following fields: Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS), Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Science for Society (interdisciplinary STEM-HSS projects).

In support of the Make Our Planet Great Again Initiative launched by President Emmanuel Macron in June 2017, the Thomas Jefferson Fund is offering additional grants this year for research projects related to Earth System Science, Climate Change and Sustainability, and Energy Transition.
