Submission Deadline: February 6th, 2012
The Embassy of France to the United States and the FACE Foundation are pleased to announce the fifth call for project proposals of the Partner University Fund (PUF).
PUF promotes innovative collaborations of excellence in research and education between French and American institutions of higher education. The modalities of transatlantic collaboration range from joint research and publications to the development of shared curricula and the establishment of joint and dual degrees. They include various forms of mobility for students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and researchers.
PUF currently supports 55 multifaceted partnerships in all fields of study.
Thanks to private donors, public contributions, and a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, projects in the humanities submitted in this 2012 funding cycle will be eligible for a higher level of financial support. PUF will fund up to 60 percent of the cost of the selected projects, up to $160,000USD annually, instead of 30 percent and $80,000 USD for projects in all other fields, respectively. Projects must be jointly submitted by at least one American and one French university.
A generous gift from Thomson Reuters also made possible the establishment of a Thomson Reuters sponsored call for projects for partnerships on Cyber-Security. This initiative includes the selection of one partnership in the field of Cyber-Security. This special call for projects follows the regular application forms and guidelines. PUF and Thomson Reuters will fund up to 30 percent of the cost of the selected project, up to $80,000USD per year.
Project proposals must be submitted by February 6th, 2012.
Funding decisions will be announced in May 2012 for the 2012-2013 academic year.
