''L'automne est un andante mélancolique et gracieux qui prépare admirablement le solennel adagio de l'hiver''.  George Sand

 

Under the high auspices of President Emmanuel Macron of the Republic of France, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and FACE Foundation inaugurated the French Dual Language Fund on September 20, 2017 at an event co-hosted by The Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

The Cultural Services of the French Embassy is dedicated to making high-quality bilingual education accessible to students of all backgrounds across the US. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, the French Dual Language Fund will support the expansion of bilingual education through pedagogical projects in 200 public schools and by allocating scholarships for 120 future teachers and funding 75 interns from France.

You can find a video and photos of the event here. You can also listen to President Macron's speech in French here or in English here or read a transcript of the speech in French here.
